What Drives Us

Our Mission

The Hill Country Charity Ball Association, Inc. was founded in honor of Charles Bowmer Schreiner, V (January 17, 1980-January 2, 1981) who died of a congenital heart disorder. Baby Charlie was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Schreiner, IV (Mary Helen). Each year, HCCBA, Inc., dedicate the proceeds of the annual gala to non-profit organizations seeking to improve the lives of others.

“Charlie’s Poem”

 Laura Lightner

I haven’t seen too much of life, and yet I know it well,

Exquisite joy and ripened pain and love too sweet to tell.

My tiny heart felt them all, and I have come to say,

I’ve left this world a better place, and though I cannot stay~

My legacy is lively hope that from my journey here

I’ve brought a touch of heaven’s light and left a message clear:

Reach out and touch the little ones and all who need your care.

For even fragile hands can build a bridge of hope to share.

So, build a bridge of hope for me by gentle deeds well done:

This little heart will cheer you on through each and every one.”
