WOW! What a Party!
With 400 Volunteers, 700 Guests, 75 Babies in our Kids II Inc. Baby Room, 2,000 Presents, 500 Pictures with Santa, 800 Pairs of Carter’s Pajamas, 1,200 Lunches from Atlanta Bread Company, Mellow Mushroom, Flying Biscuit, and more! and 1 Incredible Location – The Defoor Centre, Amy’s 2011 Holiday Party was a HUGE success!
We could not be more thrilled with the success of our 2011 Amy’s Holiday Party. Thanks to ALL of our unbelievably hard-working and dedicated volunteers as well as our incredibly generous donors and sponsors. This year’s main event was the best yet! It was an incredible experience to watch our guests’ faces light up when they walked into the Toy Room, danced with our VIBE DJ, played Burgess carnival games, made Home Depot tool boxes, and took pictures with Santa from On the Spot Memories.
As a continuous 17 year tradition, Amy’s Holiday Party once again provided Christmas to over 700 homeless, foster and refugee children. Without the untiring efforts of everyone involved, the guests would not have Christmas!
We could not have made so many children so very happy without the generous support, time and the donated venue of the Defoor Centre.
Balloonacy donated their time to come out and bring smiles to all of the children’s faces when they saw all of the fun and colorful balloons!
2,000 TOYS! TOYS! TOYS!
Skateboards, Trucks, Make Up, Dolls, Board Games, Basketballs, Stuffed Animals,
Purses, Sunglasses, Poker sets, Arts and Craft kits, Building blocks, Tea sets,
Snuggies, Barbies, Soccer balls, and on and on….
What more could one want?
Santa was there to take pictures with each child and after Santa handed each child a candy cane, we handed out new toothbrushes and toothpaste for each child.
Carters Cares donated a pair of pajamas to each child that attended the party and created a reading lounge where they read and gave books to each child in attendance.
A donation of all types of arts and crafts for the children to participate in card making, sand art, reindeer puppets, ornament making delighted the guests. Home Depot brought out all of their supplies to help the kids in attendance each make their own tool boxes.
Burgess Amusements provided great games for all the kids to play.
Lunches were donated from many different vendors but the kids LOVED the pizza donated by Mellow Mushroom.
We could not have done this event without our sponsors and Color Spot who made the signs.
Every child deserves to celebrate and be celebrated! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
