A family fall festival and silent auction is set for 4-8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 18 at Bridlewood Elementary in Flower Mound to support Bambi, Richi and Camden Trotter, the couple’s 2-year-old son.
Bambi Trotter is a kindergarten teacher at Bridlewood Elementary in Flower Mound and her husband, Richi, is a coach/teacher at Byron Nelson High School in Trophy Club.
The family is facing a crisis after Bambi Trotter was injured in a head-on collision in August, according to a news release. The accident left her with a multitude of serious medical issues, including a brain injury and many broken bones, which prevented her from returning to Bridlewood to teach.
Though Bambi Trotter has made significant progress in her recovery, according to friends, the road to recovery is a long one. She remains in rehabilitation and is improving daily. The event is to help raise money for the family.
The festival at 4901 Remington Park will feature a silent auction, a “Prayers to Heaven” balloon release, a “Silly String” booth, bounce houses and other inflatables, a cupcake walk, face painting, balloon artists, food, music, a raffle and more. Attendees also can write a note of encouragement to the Trotter family.
The planning committee is also asking former students to bring any pictures they have with Bambi Trotter. The photos will be given to her at a later date.
