A strong thread of love was created to fight against child abuse at The Thread Alliance’s Blue Plate Special Kickoff Party on Monday, April 2, 2018. The Thread Alliance Founder Sheila Aron welcomed more than 30 attendees eager to end the cycle of child abuse at Houston’s new hot spot Emmaline restaurant.
Guests were inspired to join the 6th Annual Blue Plate Special, a month-long and citywide fundraising campaign bringing child abuse to the forefront during the month of April 2018, which is child abuse prevention month. During the month of April, participating top Houston restaurants will feature an exclusive “Blue Plate Special” dish or drink and a portion of the proceeds will benefit The Thread Alliance.
Guests enjoyed tasty bites that included tuna crudo on cucumber slices, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, market pizza and mini sliders. While enjoying wine, guests warmed up to a display of “I’m Glad I’m Me, Weaving the Thread of Love from Generation to Generation,” a book by Sheila Aron. Guests were inspired to join the movement and thrilled for raffle drawings that included gift cards from El Tiempo and Tony Mandola’s.
The Thread Alliance is dedicated to ending the cycle of child abuse. The Blue Plate Special is The Thread Alliance’s citywide public awareness and education campaign encouraging Houstonians to take action against child abuse and towards healing. Local restaurants support the cause by offering a “Blue Plate Special” during the month of April, and donating a minimum of 20 percent of the proceeds to The Thread Alliance.
