Because of Creative Capes, our Seventh Annual Superhero Run on April 30th was a tremendous success, with 569 registered runners and their families joining us for the 5K race, Kids’ Run, and family fun activities – we generated more than $55,000 in revenue! We have received numerous compliments from participants who celebrated the fact that we have created an outstanding, family-friendly event. The proceeds will help sustain our CASA programs as we provide advocates for abused and neglected children in Henrico and Chesterfield-Colonial Heights. Our success at the Superhero Run allows us to meet the needs of all children referred to our programs and help them find safe, permanent homes as soon as possible.
Every child needs a hero, but abused children need superheroes! Creative Capes was a superhero for local children in need! We are grateful for your contribution and the success it brings our efforts to help abused and neglected children right here in our community. We look forward to partnering again with you next year for our Eighth Annual Superhero Run.

Sugarloaf Crafts Festival in Gaithersburg, MD, Friday, April 15 through Sunday, April 17. I’m excited to reconnect with all my friends after being hard at work in my studio all winter. I’ll be in booth number 228 in the Harvest Building.
I know my fans always like hearing about new creations I’ve been working on, and you’ll be excited to know this spring I’ll be debuting my superhero capes for dogs!
Of course, I’ll be surrounded by fabulous talent, too! 250 other jury-selected American artisans will be showcasing the finest craftsmanship in ceramics and pottery, jewelry and fashion, fine art and photography, leather, metal, wood, glass and fiber. Where else can you find this much artistry in one place?

"I purchased Super Hero outfits for my nephews for Christmas. They loved them. They kept them on almost all day! It was probably the best gift I have given them and because they are generous in size they will be able to wear them for a number of years." Thank, Holly for such a great idea!
