Community Lifeline Center is gearing up for their second annual Service Gathering – Games for Good. Designed to raise awareness about CLC and funds to support CLC’s programs, Games for Good will be a casual community game night scheduled for Thursday, May 9. Tickets will include admission, a light dinner buffet, beverages and dessert.

“’Games for Good’ is a follow-up to last year’s ‘Words with Friends’ tournament, CLC’s first ever fundraiser,” said Sharon Hagen, CLC Board member. “The event will feature the opportunity for friends to gather and enjoy the fun and competition, and each other, while celebrating and helping to further the mission of Community Lifeline.”

“While we can’t disclose what games will be played, we do expect that it will be a great time for everyone attending,” said Jaymie Pedigo, Development Director. “People of all ages love games, and everyone loves to win. There will be lots of laughter and lots of winning! Attendance, though, is limited to those 21 years and up. Plan to bring your company, your customers, your neighborhood group, civic club, Bunco, bridge or church bunch or just your ‘Circle of Friends.’ Corporate and group tables are available.”  

McKinney Flour Mill is proud to present and sponsor the event for the second year, but this year they’ll be showing off the new “Marketplace” Event Hall. And hosting again this year is Sara Thomas, Senior Vice President, Square One Mortgage at Independent Bank, along with sidekick Jeremiah Hammer, Garden Guru and President, Sustainable Ventures. “They are going to be a blast,” Pedigo said, adding “as you never know what is going to come out of their mouths.”

Major sponsors to date include Emerson Process Management and Baylor Medical Center McKinney. Visit or contact Jaymie Pedigo at for sponsorship or ticket information.
