The Children’s Services Playground Construction

Last summer the 2013 9/11 Charity LemonAid Stand raised over $30,000 for the new Oak-Leyden Children’s Services’ Playground. Now that the snow has finally melted, construction is underway once again. We are eagerly waiting for the final reveal. We’ll keep you posted.

Candlelight Bowl 2014 Highlights

On Saturday March 1st we held our 14th Annual Candlelight Bowl. Despite the heavy snow we had a wonderful turnout. There were tons of awesome raffle baskets and delicious food provided by Jimmy’s Place in Forest Park. The music had bowlers dancing in the lanes not to mention the fun crazy bowling that our Candlelight Bowl is known for. We surprised our bowlers with a mardi gras theme. If you’re looking for a fun activity to do with your friends and family mark your calendar for next year’s Candlelight Bowl it’s an event you don’t want to miss, with all of the proceeds to benefit our Early Intervention Program. Thanks to our “Perfect Game Sponsors” Chris Guillen Photography and Coplan+Crane as well as all of our other sponsors and volunteers.

To see all of the pictures from this year’s event, check out Chris Guillen’s facebook page for the link.
