Cooper Trooper "Thank You" Celebration

The Cooper Trooper Foundation held a celebration on July 6, 2012 to thank those who have been involved in different capacities over the last few years. We especially wanted to let our volunteers and supporters know how grateful we are for ALL they have done and are doing to make our mission a reality. There were over 95 people who attended.
The event was held at Taramore Clubhouse in Brentwood, TN. Thanks to some of our board members, the foundation was able to provide entertainment from Blair's West and delicious BBQ from Lowrie's BBQ. Several people and businesses were recognized and awarded with a plaque from the foundation. We also enjoyed a slide show of many of the events the foundation has held over the last 3 years.
We truly remain humbled and overwhelmed with the amount of support that The Cooper Trooper Foundation receives, especially with our annual pumpkin patch fundraiser. The month-long pumpkin patch could not operate without so many people and groups willing to give their time.
We are extremely excited about starting an endowment fund with Monroe Carroll Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in the coming weeks. This fund will have a direct impact on pediatric cancer research, right here in middle Tennessee. It is truly such a blessing to be able to help other families impacted by the #1 killing disease of children from birth to 19 years of age.
