Recap of 2022's

Paint & Cheez

TBSC Paint and Cheez event was a huge success! After planning sessions and communications with our sponsors Strack & Van Til (in Merriville, IN) and Olive Garden (in Merrillville) the afternoon finally arrived. 

Thirteen RSVP’d along with our staff, patrons, volunteers and special guest. All are not pictured.  We had an Italian style blast, and we owe it all to all of you! 

Thank you to Sponsor Strak Van Till of Merrillville, Indiana. And thanks to Sponsor Olive Garden Italian Restaurant, 1900 Southlake Mall, Merrillville IN. General Manager, Kitchen Manager & Staff. The salad and bread sticks were so deliciously loved by all.


Year Anniversary!

Happy 6th Year Business Anniversary!

On August 21st, TBSC started with a few, but now we are many, not just in numbers but in creativity. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Blair & TBSC family. We have just begun to do great things!
