Special Kids Carnival
Organized by: Katie Mersereau
The Special Kids Carnival is the first annual all-day carnival held in Hillsdale, Michigan for special needs children and their families. The Carnival will be held on April 10, 2015 from 11:00am-4:00pm, and all families with special needs children are welcome! We are inviting not only those families who reside in Hillsdale, MI, but those who live in Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio. We will welcome anyone who will drive out to join us! The purpose of this day is simply to create a special day for special kids whereby these children and their families can come and play, relax, and have some well-deserved fun. We plan to have over twenty different games, including Fish Bowl Toss (and of course, they'll all be new fish owners!) and Adopt-a-Pet, as well as exciting crafts such as Cookie Decorating and Spin Art. Tractor rides, bounce houses, and delicious food will also be served. And rumor has it, Hillsdale's princesses may be making a surprise appearance! However to make this wonderful day possible, we are need of monetary assistance. Our goal is to ensure that this special day is absolutely free to all special needs children and their families. We must find a way to cover the costs of all of the food, drinks game supplies, decorations, prizes, special guests, bounce houses, and more. The best part is, we are inviting people from many different states, so we are planning for a large turnout! We are so fortunate to be supported by Hillsdale College students who are kind enough to donate their time to help build sets, decorate, set-up, clean up, and work at the event itself. But unfortunately, volunteers are only one piece of the puzzle. We need your help to create an unforgettable day for these children. We are so grateful for your interest in helping this wonderful cause. For more information, please visit our website at http://kmersereau9.wix.com/specialkidscarnival for more information!
