Dana and I met in Memphis, Tennessee at a crop for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition in October of 2005. We then both attended Crop Connection in Jackson, Mississippi in January of 2006 and had a blast! It was as if we had known each other all of our lives. Ask Dana who the troublemakers were at the crop!! After returning from Jackson, I wanted to plan a charitable crop in Little Rock that would benefit children. When I emailed Dana about my plans she wanted to help, all the way from Mississippi! So, the two of us hosted the first annual Croppin 4 Kids in 2006. In 2007 and 2008, our attendance grew and we raised even more money for Easter Seals. As the medical director for Helping Hand, I felt it was time to start fundraising for them. So in 2012 we changed the beneficiary to Helping Hand. We are hoping 2016 will be the most successful year yet. We promise you will have a great time and you will meet some great people.
