Our guests were treated to bowling, bumper cars, arcade games, face painters, balloon twisters,family photos, and many more activities. Every child received a holiday stocking,and had the chance to win exciting prizes.
Our community partners, Stars and Strikes, helped make this amazing party a reality, and even donated a Target gift card to every child who attended.
The children’s smiles and excitement were a great way to kick of the holidays!
