Pickin' For Preemies Benefit Concert

Pickin' for Preemies is a Texas Red Dirt Country Music Event benefiting Cook Children's tiniest patients in their Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

In 2005, after their own personal experience, Justin and Casey Frazell had an idea to combine their love for red dirt music with their passion to help premature babies. Thanks to the advanced care provided by Cook Children's, the Frazells are able to watch their 11 and 14 year old children live healthy, happy lives.

Thanks to advances in neonatal medicine, technologies, excellent outcomes and donor funding, Cook Children's neonatal program is nationally recognized and state certified at the highest level. As the only Level IV NICU in Tarrant County, Cook Children's has the technology and expertise to treat the sickest babies with the most difficult and complex diagnoses.

More than 1,000 babies are admitted to our NICU each year. Cook Children's uses 600 specialized preemie diapers a day in the NICU, an average of 219,000 diapers a year! However, diapers are just one of many components to caring for these fragile babies. They also need specialized equipment, beds and medicines to name a few.

This year, we will have over a dozen Texas Red Dirt artists donate their time to raise money for the cause, live auction, chance drawing opportunities and tons of fun at Billy Bob's Texas!

Fourteen years later, Pickin' for Preemies has grown from an idea into a tradition. Imagine the relief families feel knowing, with your support, they can receive the best care possible for their tiny Texans right in their own backyard.

Julia is in 10th grade at West High School in Madison, Wisconsin. An honor roll student with autism, Julia loves her classes in pottery, computer illustration, choir and earth science. Her favorite way of working on social skills is cheering for the West High Regents. After school, she likes to watch Voltron Legendary Defenders and draw the paladin, Pidge.

Griffin has a passion for classical music and retro video games. He also loves playing the piano, swimming, and making art. Because of his Aspergers diagnose, he views the world in a unique and amazing way. He has difficulty with the concept of death and he loves animals, so he came up with the phrase "Pick two flowers with one hand" to replace "Kill two birds with one stone." He hopes to one day be a video game designer and composer. There is no doubt he will accomplish anything he puts his mind to! Griffin's mom, Missy, started a Facebook page What Will This Day Bring? that is dedicated to her blog about life with Griffin.

Presley is 17 years old and has been a student at Beyond Autism for three years. Our resident artist, you will often find Presley drawing at her desk. She loves all things Disney and frequents Disneyland as often as she can. Presley enjoys Lady Gaga and loves to dance!

Nick is 16 years old and loves to make others happy. His favorite song, Three little birds by Bob Marley, truly captures Nick’s easy going approach to life! Nick loves skateboarding, scootering and plays baseball at Miracle League. He has been a student at Beyond Autism since its inception in 2014.

Gunter was diagnosed at age 4 with Asperger’s Syndrome, a condition related to Autism. Although quirky, Gunter is loved by many due to his caring heart. In elementary school, Gunter helped found an anti-bullying club to help encourage his peers to embrace their differences. His love for helping others also led him to create a lemonade stand over the past summer with over half of his proceeds being set aside for charity, a concept that has been adopted by his younger brother now as well. Gunter and his brothers also love to provide meals to the homeless when possible and that is why Gunter has elected to attempt to raise money for Cloud Covered Streets. Helping another human off of the streets is Gunter’s goal for 2017.
