On Saturday, January 12, The Community Church of the Pelhams transformed into the most magical place in Pelham.
The Danny Fund hosted their first Breakfast with the Characters. Children dressed up in their favorite character costumes and enjoyed a buffet breakfast with their families. Over ten princesses, superheroes and other characters were on hand signing autographs and posing for photos with each child.
Over 140 guests were treated to crafts, great music, balloons, temporary tattoos and more. A fantastic number of volunteers from Pelham Middle School, the PMHS Honor Society, and Sock and Buskin assisted in the success of the breakfast festivities. A special thanks to the Junior League of Pelham making a wonderful donation to help fill raffle gift baskets created by Cindy Finegan and Flora Walsh.
A very special Valentine’s Day Card Making Station was set up for guests to participate in creating handmade Valentines for the six Danny Fund kids that are being helped with either catastrophic illnesses or injuries by the organization. Two current and two former Danny Fund children and their families were present at the breakfast.
Much gratitude goes to Dave Katz of Depot Dave Catering for donating the hot food and a special thank you to DeCiccos, Bagels & More, Renaissance Bagels, OnPoint Printing, Rockwell’s and Dave’s Cast of Characters for special discounts and donations.
