Bowling, Birthdays and Babies

Well it has been another crazy and hectic week for Ella's Halo.  We are creeping up on our event B4B on May 14th.  Lots of things to do yet before the big day.  I keep thinking I have time but as we get closer to the one month mark the more things I remember we have to do yet. 

We also celebrated Ella's birthday.  I will do a post later on our special day of donating and remembering our little girl.  Ella's Halo did three donations at 3 separate hospitals this past Friday in honor of Ella's special day and it was just so much fun.  This is why we continue to do our events, so we can raise money and donations to be able to give back to the NICUs.  It was such a wonderful day.

We are also looking for families who would like to include their baby's photo in the NICU in a little video we are going to play at our bowling event.  We would like to include other families and show our bowling guests what NICU life is like.  Each family has a different story about their NICU journey and each baby has a different experience.  We would like to include other families who know this roller coaster all too well.  So if you are interested in having your little NICU baby included in our video with your child's name, please email me at  We would be so honored to have your child featured at our Bowling for Babies event.  Seeing their little faces while in the hospital will be a great reminder to everyone about why we are raising money, to help babies and families in the NICU!

Ella's Halo had a planning board meeting last week as well.  We are working on putting together silent auction packages and new raffle ideas.  This year we will have a face painter for the kids in addition to little prizes for them as well.  We are all getting very exciting for our favorite family friendly event and hope you are too.  If you haven't purchased your tickets go here to register. 

We have some awesome lane sponsors joining this year's event as well.  Thank you to Paradigm, Wedding Designs and Rentals, Jenny and Michael Reyes, Natural Nutrients, and Andy and Chelsea Marthaler for being lane sponsors.  If you are interested in being a lane sponsor or event sponsor, email us at  The costs for an event sponsorship is $250 and lane sponsorship is $100.  Contact us for more details.

And this year if you purchase your Bowling for Babies tickets by April 15th you will be registered into a special drawing.  So hurry and order your tickets so your name will be included in the drawing!  Tickets for adults are $20 and kids 12 and under are $10.

Also we have something special for you this Friday.  A new feature we will be hosting here on our Ella's Halo blog!  So come back on April 1st to check us out!
