Steiner Ranch Holiday Event – November 2013

Beautiful Serving Stones sponsored by NEST Properties Austin and graciously crafted by Tom Henry! 100% of proceeds go to the Steiner Serves charity of the month – CASA (http://www.casatravis.org).  With the generous donations made, we’re assisting CASA in ensuring that the 1,000+ children in Foster Care receive at least one holiday gift this season.  And thanks to those who purchased the Steiner Serving Stones, an additional 17 children will receive holiday gifts on behalf of the Steiner Ranch community. Amazing! These stones will continue to be available at Cups and Cones and Hue Salon in Steiner Ranch through the holidays.  They make a GREAT gift and it’s a wonderful way to give back to the community!  Thank you for ALL of your support and generosity!...
