We Appreciate our Royal Evening Sponsors

“The Carson Higgins Memorial Foundation is proud to be the first-ever Bid Card Sponsor of the Royal Evening as we believe in CVCA’s mission of Educating and Cultivating Servants for Christ. Carson Gene Higgins was an incredibly caring and courageous young man who lost his 9-year battle against Neuroblastoma, a rare childhood cancer, in 2016 at the age of 12. Early in Carson’s fight with the disease, we titled his journey a “God’s story of Faith, Hope, and Love.” When Carson relapsed, we gave him the hashtag CARSONSTRONG. He was generous and kind and he truly enjoyed giving to and helping others. In keeping with his compassionate and generous spirit, The Carson Higgins Memorial Foundation was founded in 2017. The organization’s mission is to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, to support causes and charities that Carson loved, and to continue to pay it forward in his memory.  You can learn more about Carson’s faith, journey, and upcoming fundraising events at or on the Carson Strong Facebook page.”
