ESNG’s Babies Can’t Wait puts the fun in Fall Family Fun Day
The over 1,500 children attending our 12 child development centers in Fulton County and Northeast Georgia have been in school for over a month now. Easter Seals at Sylvan Hills has worked hard every one of these 30 days. So much so, in fact, that Classroom J (Pre-K) celebrated with an “I Survived” day. They channeled their inner warrior! Check these photos of how they celebrated.
We have been working hard to make this year’s event bigger and better to raise funds and awareness for children with special needs or disabilities in our community. As a part of the festival, we will hold a raffle. There have been many generous community businesses, organizations and attractions that have donated tickets, items or gift cards to be raffled off. A huge thank you to all of our sponsor. A sample of the prizes that will be raffled are:
- Children’s bicycles
- Two round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines
- Tickets to area attractions, including:
- Georgia Aquarium
- Mayfield Dairy
- Stars and Strikes
- Word of Coca-Cola
