Casey’s 11th birthday is coming up in just a few weeks. Last year we were still in fog from losing her just before she turned 10. She LOVED her birthday! Every year we would go all out. She loved to see her friends and have a day all about her. We would usually have a party on a weekend near her birthday, and if her actual birthday was on a weekday we would take her to her favorite place for lunch. Casey loved going to Chili’s. We would get her some ice cream; she couldn’t eat food by mouth, but she could taste things on her tongue. She loved to read the colorful Chili’s menu. We have a lot of special birthday memories of her at Chili’s. One year she wasn’t up to going physically so Tim went to Chili’s and got take out. He told them how much Casey loved it there and that she just wasn’t feeling up to coming that year. They gave him a menu to take home so that she could still read it while she was resting. One year she and her nurse made their own Chili’s menu full of all the Casey flair we love so much. We still have both of these menus with Casey’s books.
Shortly after Casey passed away we created Casey’s Circle, a nonprofit, to serve as her legacy and to continue all of the work she inspired. To celebrate her 11th birthday we reached out to Chili’s. On Wednesday, April 19th, from open to close, Chili’s Round Rock will giving back to Casey’s Circle. You can dine-in or take-out at any time that day at the Round Rock location (2711 S Interstate 35, Round Rock, TX 78664). Be sure to tell them you are there for Casey’s Circle. You can download our flyer and hand it to them, or just mention that you are there for the Casey’s Circle Fundraiser. 10% of every purchase that mentions the fundraiser will be donated to Casey’s Circle. Help us celebrate Casey’s birthday this year at her favorite place. We hope to see you all there!
