We started off with birthday bingo. There were lots of games and lots of bingo's and prizes. This was fun for the whole family. Whiteaker Middle School Choir Director, Andy Thomas, did an amazing interactive song/game with everyone about the rain and storms. Before it was over, everyone, adults and kids were making sounds with their hands. It was so cool. The children loved it. Then the kids divided into two groups and took turns playing a hot potato gift game and making necklaces with their names on it. Many prizes were won and smiles were everywhere!
Everyone then enjoyed vanilla and chocolate cupcakes! Three of our birthday kids were able to be there for their party and were so thankful for the celebration. Every child there received their own personalized goody bag while the birthday kids enjoyed all their gifts. We were told by one of the parents that this was their daughters first birthday party ever as they have never been able to afford one. What a great feeling to bring joy to these deserving kids.
Another big thank you to Whiteaker Middle School Choir and Andy Thomas, Julie Motley, and their students who sponsored a fun filled evening for the kids.
