What's Happening in Cypress

Kindness Matters!

The Cypress Challenge ‘#18DaysOfKindness’ campaign has launched!

Join our committed groups of participants, starting with Cypress youth, who have set out to raise awareness toward the importance of being kind, making kindness a habit. Campaign funds raised benefit the Jordan Merecka Caring Heart Assistance program (JMCH) through Deep Cypress Alliance (DCA), a 501c3 organization.

The JMCH provides financial assistance to individuals or families in the community who have experienced personal trauma of some sort that has resulted in financial hardship.

Kindness increases HAPPINESS according to a 2010 Harvard Business School survey of happiness in 136 countries found that people who use their financial resources to help others, such as charitable donations – were the happiest of all.

The Cypress Challenge will continue until November 8 when the top fundraisers will be announced at the Fashion with Passion event, Thursday, November 9th, at Enchanted Cypress Ballroom.

The 7th Annual Fashion with Passion Event, in conjunction with the Cypress Challenge, will feature the Class of 2018 high school Senior Models to promote kindness and the campaign. The models compete for prizes via fundraising efforts and showcase their style and personality at the campaign finale, Fashion with Passion. It’s a fun, rewarding evening of community celebration and socializing.
