Alamo City Moms Blog is happy to partner with Eva’s Heroes and allow them to share news of their Baskets & Blankets family event on May 1st at Brackenridge Park.
Everybody loves a picnic. It’s great to catch up with friends, share in the excitement, laughter, food and drinks, and wonderful memories that are made with family and loved ones. We’re happy to share the good news about Eva’s Heroes 10th anniversary celebration this year. This nonprofit organization, which was co-founded by Eva Longoria and Christiane Perkins-Garcia, board president, has enriched the lives of more than 1,500 teens and young adults with intellectual special needs since 2006 through a number of programs they offer.
Eva’s Heroes invites you and your family to come celebrate their 10th anniversary during Baskets & Blankets, a communal picnic featuring food, drinks, and live entertainment from 4:00–8:00 P.M. on Sunday, May 1 at Brackenridge Park. This special event is the first time they are hosting such a huge outdoor celebration, which is sponsored by the generous individuals of Community First Health Plans.

Then as the sun sets, moms and dads can enjoy a beverage of their choice while enjoying live music by local artists Chacho & Brance and Ed Morales.
