What Drives Us
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.
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.”
