Three Feet of Sunshine's 2nd Annual Monster Bash Saturday at St. Stephens

Three Feet of Sunshine is holding their 2nd annual Monster Bash, benefitting Seattle Children's Pediatric Advanced Care Team, this Saturday from 3-7pm.

The event will again be held at St. Stephen's Church (4805 Ne 45th Street) and Amy White, founder, tells us that "all the excitement from last year will be back - and more! We've even added an extra hour to the festivities this year, as well as some new fun and games - including a cupcake walk, sponsored by Trophy Cupcakes."

Admission fee is $13 and the flier says it includes pony rides, a Haunted House, cotton candy, pumpkin decorating, cupcake walk, costume contest, games, crafts and prizes for everyone.

Three Feet of Sunshine was established Amy and Klane White in July 2009 in memory of their daughter, Susannah, who spent the last year of her life at Seattle Children's,  in the care of the palliative and nursing teams at Children's Hospital.

The logo was actually designed by Susannah at 8 years old. And the name, Three Feet of Sunshine, came from a friend of Susannah's who wrote a tribute to Susannah with that title, about about their friendship, as an assignment in 9th grade.

Amy says on her website that Three Feet of Sunshine "strive(s) to showcase Susannah's ever sunny disposition by sharing her sunny disposition with other children facing difficult paths.  We raise awareness and funds aimed at providing opportunities and extending support programs devoted to enhancing quality of life for pediatric patients and their families."
