CRAFT

Craft is an annual craft cocktail competition fundraising event benefiting the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation North Texas chapter. Craft bartenders from area restaurants and bars will convene annually at the event to compete in a craft cocktail contest where patrons will vote for the Best Craft Cocktail in Cowtown. A panel of celebrity judges will also vote on the Judges' Choice Award for an honorable mention.

Why the name "Craft?" This event is much more than a fun time crafting great cocktails. Proceeds from Craft benefit the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation North Texas and the organization's mission to find a cure for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis (collectively known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease or "IBD") and to improve the lives of the more than 70,000 North Texans living with these diseases. Crohn's & Colitis Foundation North Texas aims to serve these patients through a variety of services such as medical research, local support groups, education events, and Camp Oasis (a one-week summer camp designed to accommodate children suffering from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis)

With your support, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation North Texas can continue to provide these life changing programs and services to children and adults battling the debilitating effects of IBD.

Since the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's founding nearly five decades ago, the foundation has remained at the forefront of research. Today, the foundation funds cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurtures investigators at the early stages of their careers, and finances underdeveloped areas of research. The National Institute of Health has commended the foundation for "uniting the research community and strengthening IBD research."

Beyond research, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation collaborates with healthcare providers to improve IBD quality of care, as well as educating, supporting, and empowering patients and their caregivers through patient-centric education and advocacy programs.

Big Taste of Fort Worth

Join us as we celebrate 40 years! The Barrett Havran Memorial Big Taste of Fort Worth is one of Tarrant County’s premiere food and wine tasting events.

Through your partnership with our Barrett Havran Memorial Big Taste of Fort Worth, you are working with us to empower youth in Tarrant County through high-quality, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships.  Because of the continued success of our Barrett Havran Memorial Big Taste of Fort Worth, we have been fortunate enough to continue to respond to our community’s demand for preventative services and educational resources. In 2018 Big Brothers Big Sisters Tarrant County launched our Mentor 2.0 Barrett Havran Legacy Program. This program pairs a mentor with a high school student, where mentoring takes place each week during the school year through our online communication on our proprietary platform complemented with pre-scheduled in person events every 4 to 6 weeks.  Together, through one-to-one mentoring we are increasing the likelihood that our most vulnerable population will achieve educational success, higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships, while also avoiding risky behaviors.

Our outcome-based mentoring program continues to make a significant and enduring impact on children’s lives: while the dropout rate for Texas’ children is a shocking 38%, a full 98% of our Tarrant County Littles program were promoted to the next grade level.

Please contact Melanie Hanna, mhanna@bbbstx.org, if you have any questions or if you would like to be a part of our 2019 Barrett Havran Memorial Big Taste of Fort Worth!
