Our 15th Storybook Fundraiser was a huge success! Once again, we chose to do the Picnic home delivery model to keep everyone safe. The joy and excitement that poured in throughout the morning of the event reassured us all that this is still a unique and creative way to bring fun and magic to children and families within our community.
We are thrilled to announce that we made $27,000 and also received $6,500 in IN KIND support! All of these funds will go directly into our work supporting early learning and parenting within Brantford-Brant.
We are so grateful to our long-time sponsors for sticking with us and we were delighted to welcome some new ones this year too too!
A very special thanks to the Major Event Sponsors, James F. Boughner Foundation and Margot and Paul Williamson and Family!
We were once again delighted to have ALL of our food donated by Longos of Ancaster. Other major sponsors include Terrace Hill Medical Centre, Findlay Law, Adkins Financial Services Inc., The Expositor, REMM, Campbell and Company Real Estate and Lynden Hills Dentistry. Our sincere appreciation to ALL the sponsors, donors and supporters.
We could not provide this event without the army of volunteers who assist in the planning, dressing up, driving, packing and designing the program, routes and activities for the children. The look of wonder and excitement on the children’s faces when the characters arrive at their home is priceless! Every child gets a storybook in their bag. We believe this helps to reinforce the importance of reading to young children, which of course is one of the foundations of Kids Can Fly! In addition to the book, picnic food, craft, activities and a keepsake program; some sponsors chose to add additional promotional items to the bags which brings extra fun to the children. All of this truly adds to the magical morning of the Storybook Breakfast Picnic, and for that we are grateful.
We sincerely hope that we can count on your support again in 2023.
