Crommelin Honors Loved Ones With Service to Magic Moments

Jane Huston Crommelin joined the Board of Directors at Magic Moments two years ago. When she isn’t working with the organization to support Alabama’s most deserving children, she serves as a realtor at Ray & Poynor Properties. Crommelin was attracted to the mission of Magic Moments because of a personal relationship with founders Shelley and Angela Clark. Crommelin also uses her work with Magic Moments to honor the memory of her own child who passed away, Sally Wade Crommelin.

We truly learned how dedicated Jane Huston is to Magic Moments this past fall. She ordered 100 or so “You’ve Been Boo’d” signs to surprise her real estate clients and support Magic Moments. What Jane Huston didn’t realize was that it was up to her to deliver each sign! She put in the work — quite literally — to help spread awareness of the Magic Moments mission throughout the Over the Mountain community.

If Jane Huston had her own magic moment, it would be a couples’ trip to a luxurious beach resort.

Junior Board Member Katie Bass Has Deep Roots with Magic Moments

Katie Bass started her journey with Magic Moments as an intern in college. These days, Katie is a long-time supporter of the organization and has been on the junior board for two years.

Her love for helping others and seeing the patients’ happy faces when their magic moment has been granted is what drew Katie to the organization. You will always see her at the TumTum Tree Foundation’s annual wine auction benefitting Magic Moments — it is her favorite (and signature!) fundraiser!

On the other hand, Bass’ favorite magic moment story to share is telling a high schooler he would be going to New York City with his family. Homewood student David didn’t get to travel with the Homewood High School band in late 2018 due to this treatment schedule.

The whole Homewood High School marching band joined Katie and the rest of the junior board as they shared the news with David and were cheering him on. 

Katie says, “It was a very exciting and emotional surprise.” Katie’s magic moment would be a classic choice — she’d wish to meet all of the princesses at Disney World! 

We are grateful for young professionals like Katie who give their time and energy to our junior board!

Montgomery’s Frazer Makes Magic Moments a Family Affair

Nim Frazer is a long time Magic Moments supporter and a member of our River Region Council. By trade, he works in industrial real estate, but he and his family still find time to support Magic Moments in many different ways.

“It’s a charity that is dear to my heart, incredibly rewarding, and very touching to support,” he said. “The Capitol Clay Shoot in Montgomery is one of my favorite Magic Moments events because of the raffle drawings and the ability to come together with friends to support a great charity. The skeet shoot adds a little bit of friendly competition.”

Frazer said that his daughter, Mary Blan, has had the privilege of serving as a Magic Maker multiple times.

“The joy the kids and their families experience from these opportunities is so rewarding for a Magic Maker,” he said. If Frazer had his own magic moment, he’d wish to hang out with Nick Saban for an afternoon.

Thank you to Nim, Mary Blan, and the whole Frazer family for your support of Magic Moments!
