The public turned out in force May 5 to support the charity, paying between $25 and $35 to chow down on the crunchy crustaceans and traditional sides.

Attendees also enjoyed a Kids Zone with inflatables, a silent auction, face painters, raffles, lawn games and more. Food trucks also were available.

“The Fort Bend Rainbow Room is one of our favorite charities,” said Rob Bamford, General Manager of Cross Creek Ranch. “We were so pleased to host this year’s fundraiser. Their success this year is a tribute to the community’s love for what this organization stands for.”

The Rainbow Room provides emergency and transitional supplies to Fort Bend County children and adults in crisis.

The resource room is stocked with snacks, diapers, school supplies, clothes, toiletries, toys and other items frequently needed to meet the emergency needs of families. All items are new as the organization’s philosophy is that abused and neglected children and adults do not deserve used items.

Prior to the establishment of the Fort Bend Rainbow Room, local caseworkers frequently used their own funds to meet these needs while waiting for permanent funding solutions.

Cross Creek Ranch also supports the organization as a drop-off point for the Annual Rainbow Room Back-to-School Supply Drive.
