On Saturday, June 11, 2016, the Kids for Kids Foundation held the 8th Annual Family Fun Day to Benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
This Year’s Family Fun Day was our best ever.
Thanks to the fundraising efforts of our Committee, Junior Committee, sponsors and friends, we raised $1,065,814 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The event was attended by 1,100 people, including Mr. Met and former New York Yankee and New York Met Gary Sheffield! This was an action-packed day with carnival rides, games, food, live entertainment and a silent auction for the adults.
Items that were auctioned off include Rolex Watches, a Disney Vacation, Children’s Bikes, Wine Packages, Exotic Car Rentals, iPods and much much more. This was made possible because of the generous efforts of our donors.
As usual, the children loved the event. They got their faces painted, they got to play with balloon animals, they took part in the rides, entered a fun house and played many games. Everyone enjoyed the music and food.
A special thanks goes out to Aviator Sports and Events Center and all of the vendors who donated their products and services to our events.
Thank you to Jon Bon Jovi for signing a guitar for our silent auction.
