Details About Crop Because You Care 2013

Come Save Memories in Scrapbooks and Have a Great Time!

The 12th Annual Crop Because You Care scrapbooking event is scheduled for Saturday, February 23rd from 10:00 A.M. to 10 P.M. The affair is being held at the Hilton Garden Inn, at 277 West Sego Lily Dr in Sandy, Utah. All proceeds directly benefit the Epilepsy Association of Utah.

Crop Because You Care has become the yearly fund raiser, according to Kris Hansen, Epilepsy Association of Utah Vice-President. People of all ages come from throughout Utah and as far away as California, Idaho, and Nevada with their scrap-booking supplies to crop the day away. There will also be a special drawing for a get-away, and a silent auction.

Do you like to scrap-book? Do you, or does someone you know, have epilepsy? Do you like gettin’ crafty for a cause? Well then, the 11th annual Crop Because You Care is the place to be for you. 

“Crop the day away with your friends and family, get great ideas from the other scrappers, and learn from some of the best. A great excuse to get out and be creative! Entry price is $25.00 for the all day pass… Enjoy up to 12 hours of demonstrations, vendor booths, speakers, and creative fun. Bring your supplies and pictures along with any ideas you’d like to share”

Here are some comments that were made on the Crop Because You Care Facebook page in reference to CBYC 2010:

Nadine Jones Anderson said, “My sister and I have come for the last 8 years (I wish we new about it one year sooner!) and my daughter has benefited by attending camp twice! Thanks so much!”

Alina Dannette Burk said, “I get so excited every time CYBC comes around! I have attended every year since it began 9 years ago. I simply cannot imagine missing this event!”

Cindee Stoker Nielsen said, “My sister, mom and I have been coming to CBYC every year since it started. This year Mom has to drive four hours to get here, but we’ll still be there – thanks for providing us the opportunity to get together and enjoy our favorite hobby.”

The above comments are just a few of the great things heard about CBYC, if you can’t believe it, come and see for yourself, this year on April 28th, 2012 at the South Towne Expo Center!

If scrap-booking isn’t your thing, you can still get involved with this great cause. “The crop… has raised thousands of dollars to help the Association provide services to people dealing with the many challenges of epilepsy.” If you would like to donate items to be raffled, auctioned, or if you would like to be a sponsor of this year’s Crop Because You Care you can contact the EAU’s office, at (801) 566-5949 or Bethany at bethany@epilepsyut.org.
