From Trinity Christian School:
Lubbock, Texas- Trinity Christian School of Lubbock, Texas has announced its annual fundraiser event in support of the school's Foundation: "Live Out Loud! With Lauren Scruggs" to be held at Trinity Christian High School, located at 6701 University Avenue, on Friday, May 3, 2013. Lauren, as known as LoLo, is a highly acclaimed 24-year old fashion journalist with a tremendous faith who was horrifically injured in December 2011 when she accidentally walked into a spinning plane propeller.
The accident caused Lauren to suffer a brain injury as well as the loss of her left eye and hand. This courageous young woman has been working hard to overcome the losses since and now uses a prosthetic hand and eye. She offers a compelling message of restoration and recovery through her relationship with God.
Two opportunities to meet Lauren are available May 3rd: A luncheon will be served for females, especially mothers and daughters, age sixth grade and up beginning at 11:30 a.m. Lauren will be sharing her heart about how she has overcome this tragedy. Together with her parents, Lauren has co-authored the book, Still LoLo: A Spinning Propeller, a Horrific Accident, and a Family's Journey of Hope. Copies will be available for purchase. Tickets are now available for $10 at www.tcslubbock.org or by contacting the school at 806.791.6583.
Doors open for an evening event at 6 p.m., which begins with a dinner catered by Texas Tech's Top Tier Catering, followed by an interview session with Lauren and her parents, Jeff and Cheryl Scruggs. Reserved tables start at $500, and individual tickets may be purchased for $50. A photo opportunity and Green Room time with the Scruggs family is being provided to the $5,000 Platinum table sponsor. Tables and tickets are available at www.tcslubbock.org. Click on the Live Out Loud! logo for information.
Rob Winkler, superintendent of Trinity Christian School, stated, "Lauren captures the heart of every young woman with her powerful story, and Jeff and Cheryl Scruggs are able to share a most compelling love story of God's restorative power." He added, "The money raised from this evening will be used for tuition assistance, upgrades in technology and curriculum, as well as other academic and athletic programs."
