Hat and Mitten Drive - December 2015

Toy Drive - December 2015

Thaddeus appealed to the administration of his school for their support of a toy drive to supplement money earned from the Zombie Prom.  His middle school administration graciously agreed to allow him to host a 5th/6th grade toy drive

Zombie Prom - October 2015

Thaddeus & his mom Carolyn are big Halloween fans.  They decided to make their inaugural Nashville fundraiser a Zombie Prom.  They partnered with another local 501c3 Jailhouse Industries, as the folks of Jailhouse are experts in haunting.  The result was a very successful party with DJ, the Eisenhauer Band, bonfire, blow-up obstacle course, Zombie Q, and more; all to benefit the Hillsboro Kids Club/kids in need in Leiper’s Fork at Christmas.
