Don't Miss The Annual "Monster Bash" Family Event On Saturday

Three Feet of Sunshine's 3rd Annual Monster Bash, benefitting Seattle Children's Pediatric Advanced Care Team, is happening this Saturday from 3-7pm at St. Stephen's Church (4805 NE 45th Street). The cost for the event is $13 for all the fun and will be held rain or shine.

The popular neighborhood event is great fun for families with a variety of activities for all ages, including a hair-raising haunted house, pony rides, ghoulish games and prizes, creepy crafts, pumpkin decorating, costume contest and parade, kid's dj and dancing, cotton candy, kettle corn and the fun cauldron of prizes.

Amy White, founder of Three Feet of Sunshine, tells us that "This year's event "is going to be the biggest and best bash yet!  Grab your little ghosts and goblins and fly by  for a spook-tacular celebration."

"The Yummy Mummy Cupcake Walk will again be in full swing and perhaps most exciting of all, each and every guest will be treated to a delicious, Halloween themed Trophy Cupcake, thanks to this amazing and incredibly generous neighborhood business.  Not only will cupcakes abound, Craven Farms will once again providing the kids with their very own pumpkins to take home!" Amy adds.

Three Feet of Sunshine was established by 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 Hospital,  in the care of the palliative and nursing teams at Children's Hospital.

The logo (below) 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.

Three Feet of Sunshine, a Seattle Children's Guild, "is dedicated to enriching the lives of children and families who bear the weight of potentially life-threatening illnesses, by sharing the ever-sunny disposition and steadfast spirit of sweet Susannah - a little girl, despite spending the last year of her life in the hospital, always had a smile to give and a hug to share.  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."

Bring a new, unused costume to the event for a Seattle Children's patient and receive an extra special trick-or-treat.

All proceeds from this fun event benefit Seattle Children's Hospital Pediatric Advanced Care Team.  "Great fun for a great cause!' Amy says.
