On October 27th, the Foundation hosted its 10th Annual Fall Carnival in Memorial Park in Chester, PA. For the past ten years this has been an awesome event that has continued to grow larger and larger each year. With over 2,000 Chester residents coming out, this was our largest under taking to date. The Fall Carnival is held every year in Chester as an introductory of the Foundation to the city of Chester and vis versa. Over 80 volunteers from the Chester County area came out to help us run the event and were introduced to this awesome city. Another huge part of our volunteer group was our RISE Students who were a tremendous help in running the event with us.
The Fall Carnival had inflatable obstacle courses, a bounce house, face painting, pumpkin painting, hay rides, live music, lots of free food, and even a free book give away. There was a little something for everyone. Children of all ages came dressed in their Halloween costumes and even got to go home with a bag of candy and treats. It was a special day for families to come out and enjoy the Fall festivities and spend a little time with one another. The event was such a hit 6ABC News came out to cover the event and highlight some of the awesome activities happening at the event.
After 10 years of putting on this event we are so grateful the city of Chester continues to welcome us with open arms into their community. The Foundation is a partnership with this city and the wonderful people who join us are why we do it. Another thank you goes out to our amazing sponsor Christ Community Church with out both their sponsorship and wonderful volunteers this massive event truly would not be possible.
