The Ashley Lauren Foundation will be holding its 20th Annual Scott Chinery SUMMERFEST for Children with Cancer on July 24, 2016.
This annual event is given to these special children as a “day away.” Inflicted with this insidious disease, they endure many traumas while undergoing treatment and this day-long event of swimming, entertainment, games, rides, activities, food and much more brings tremendous joy to the hearts of these children and their families. Approximately 200+ are in attendance each year and our job is to provide all that we can for them. The reward is to see the smiles on the faces of each child who, for a short time, can forget about their illness and just “be kids.”
We are asking for your assistance with this very important event by doing a Toy Drive for us. One of the aspects (and favorite) of Summerfest, is our “Toy Room.” The children go through the room and choose their favorite new toys to take home with them. Your assistance will go far in providing happiness to some very courageous children and their families. We are seeking new, fun, unwrapped toys (no stuffed animals) for ages 3-18.
