Not everyone wants to bowl and not everyone wants to ask friends for donations but
We have made it easy for YOU to do YOUR part! FRIENDS OF THE FOUNDATION TEAM is set up for members who do not have a team! If every one of our members donated $20 to that team we would raise $40,000. That is A LOT of money! Almost all of our programs and events are FREE to our members! Imagine the good we could do working together and just donating $20 for the amazing OPPORTUNITIES provided to your family and loved one! Don't wait - GIVE TODAY! Your $20 could bring our FRIENDS OF THE FOUNDATION TEAM to $40,000 by 2/21/21!

Have you noticed your baby’s eyes light up when you turn on music? Does your toddler like to rock out when they hear their favorite song?

Join us for some fun in the sun while our little ones create their own musical instruments!

Most babies and toddlers love listening to music, and for good reason. Hearing is one of a baby’s first senses to fully develop, and, just like us, little ones love listening to songs, rhythms and beats!

Thank you to Suzanne Sherrill for planning this fun outing!
