My oldest daughter recently made her acting debut. If you ask her, she’ll tell you she is now a ‘star’. I’m not sure she even knows what a ‘star’ is, but she is pretty excited about being in a promo video for Salsa De Mayo, an event by Lawn America that benefits 111Tulsa.
Chris works for 111Tulsa, a local non-profit that focuses on recruitment and support of foster families. Salsa De Mayo is a chips and salsa tasting event with lots of other fun attractions – like pinatas, face painting, inflatables and salsa dancing. Over 20 restaurants will be in attendance.
A chips & salsa tasting event. A room full of chips and salsa. Count me in. For sure.
Signal Factory generously offered to write and create a promo for the event. It was interesting to watch them film. I asked if they took interns – if I wasn’t busy with 5 kids, I would definitely beg them to be an intern! If they said “no”, I would sit outside their office like Bob Goff did his Dean (Love Does….anyone?).
I was so surprised watching my daughter. She’s not shy, but I was still taken aback by how unaffected she was by the cameras and all the guys directing her. She handled it exactly the opposite as I would have handled it. I would have grabbed a bag of chips and ran for the door. She totally embraced it. I love that about her.I know so many of you have read this random blog for many years. You’ve cheered for my girls (both of them) through surgeries and hospital stays and life. I thought you might like seeing FireCracker in action. You can’t hear her voice, but you can see her personality.
It is SALSA De Mayo….so it would make no sense to fill pinatas with candy. However, salsa coming out of a pinata doesn’t look quite as pretty as candy coming out. You’ve been warned 😉 …
The event takes place on May 17th 2:30-4:30 at the Union UMAC in Tulsa. Tickets are $5.00 at the door, but there is a Groupon now for $2.50 a ticket.
