Children's Miracle Network families giving back

Posted: Updated:

Families helped through Children's Miracle Network are giving back to those who have helped them most.

The Butts family organized an event tonight to honor Dr. Rick Rogers and Shirley Gordon for helping East Texas children with special needs.

Will and Ellie Butts were the Miracle Children last year.

Their family says the event is to express their gratitude for keeping the joy in their lives.

"Joy comes sometimes in grief and grief can be divided in two, but joy can be multiplied many times over. Especially in the smiles of children and those people that come along side them to love them, to care for them and to treat them," said Tom Brown, Miracle Children's Grandfather.

The event at Willowbrook Country Club raised about $40,000 tonight.

The Butts family hopes this will be an ongoing tradition.
