Our new Pirate Ship is installed and presenting wonderful adventures to all the children. Everyone had a wonderful time celebrating at the Pirate Party Ribbon Cutting ceremony that took place in September.
There was plenty of entertainment for all to enjoy starting with the wonderful music provided by DJ Lobie from Lobie Entertainment who set the festive mood for our event.
Scott also works at FocusMX which is a large ongoing in-kind contributor to the Kids Castle cause – they completely redesigned our website and are helping Kids Castle in so many other ways.
CB Cares provided a fun free prize drawing with games for all the children to enjoy and also brought along a couple of volunteers who dressed as a pirate and tinkerbell – they helped make all the children feel very special.
We also had three wonderful pirates from the Village Players dressed in full regalia interacting with the crowd – they came to us straight from the The Village Renaissance Faire.
Many wonderful volunteers from SoferWare helped set up everything for the event and hosted the Kids Castle table all day. SofterWare is a long time in-kind supporter of Kids Castle – they’ve been with us helping since the beginning of Phase 1.
And it was so very special when Dr. Kahley, Principal of Kutz Elementary School handed over so many hand written thank-you notes that were made by all the Kutz kids to our Pirate Ship sponsorship . Then they all gathered together, pulled out the pirate eye patches from their back pockets and proceeded to sing a wonderful ‘piratey’ song that they all learned in just four days. The crowd went wild with applause.
Then the big moment when the Pirate Party gave way to the ceremonial red ribbon being cut and all our little pirates rushed aboard the new Pirate Ship and had lots of fun.
A Big Thank You to Andrew’s Friends Fund our sponsor who fully funding the purchase of Kids Castle’s new Pirate Ship. Thank You for making all of this happen!
