Family Fun "Monster Bash" Saturday At St. Stephens



(Pony rides last year)

Three Feet of Sunshine is holding its 6th annual Monster Bash, benefitting Seattle Children's Pediatric Advanced Care Team, this Saturday from 3-7pm.
New this year will be two performances by Recess Monkey at 4pm and 5pm.

The event will again be held at
St. Stephen's Church (4805 NE 45th Street) rain or shine.

Admission fee is $13 and includes reusable trick-or-treat bags, the popular haunted house, pumpkin decorating, costume contest and parade, pony rides, pumpkin painting, kid's dj and dancing, crafts, popcorn, cotton candy, Yummy Mummy Cupcake Walk, courtesy of Trophy Cupcakes, games  and a cauldron full of prizes. Craven Farm will also supply kids with their very own pumpkins to take home.
In celebration of the 5th annual event, there will be two performances by the popular kids' band, Caspar Babypants (also known as Chris Ballew, lead singer of Presidents of the United States of America).  Guests will also be treated to festive and re-usable Trick-OR-Treat totes.
Coming in costume is encouraged. And if you bring a new, unused costume for a Seattle Children's patient you will receive a special treat.
Three Feet of Sunshine was established by Amy and Klane White, Laurelhurst residents, 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.  The Guild is dedicated to enriching the lives of children and families who bear the weight of potentially life-threatening illnessesWe raise awareness and funds aimed at providing opportunities and extending support programs devoted to enhancing quality of life for pediatric patients and their families."
