Hugs of Hope Family Fall Festival
Thanks to several successful fundraisers in September and October, we are able to provide our families with a special family fun day October 18th! The VSU Kappa Delta Gamma Mu sorority will help host this fun event! They are busy collecting new costumes for our kiddos to choose from at the fall festival. Extra costumes will be delivered to Wolfson’s Children’s Hospital for those kiddos that may be inpatient on Halloween.
Our kiddos will have bounce houses, slides, games, face painting, and just plain fun to enjoy for a few hours. Our parents will be able to just sit back, relax, and enjoy a beautiful afternoon while their children play. They will be able to support each other and make friends that understand their journey better than anyone else!
We are grateful to our many supporters who make fun family events like this possible for our local families! Our next event will be our Christmas Wish Celebration. Each child will complete a wish list and we will need many elves to help us fill their wishes between now and November 30th! If you would like to help, email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a Christmas Wish List! You can specify boy, girl, or age. You can choose one child or more-even an entire family-perfect for large offices or groups!
