An Event for the Community!

As a wedding and event professional and one who's often enamored by the beauty and romance that's captured in a wedding , it's always great when the opportunity to plan an event for children comes around; the chance to be a kid again!  That opportunity came when I was contracted to plan Future Foundation's 2012 "Let's Move" Family Field Day, for 200 kids and their families.

Future Foundation has a mission to level the playing field for youth in the metro-Atlanta area by providing education, health, and life skill programs to the students that they serve in their comprehensive after-school program.  The purpose of the field day event was to engage the kids and their families in various fitness activities that were also fun,  provide a great meal that was also healthy and refreshing in the blazing Atlanta heat, and also bring awareness to the organization.

The kids enjoyed playing on the kickball tournament, tug-of-war, games of sack races, balloon tosses, and hula hoop contests, where they had a chance to win ribbons and medals at the end of the event.  For the little kids, there were the inflatable obstacle courses and bounce houses, along with face painting and an arts and crafts station.  All around, the kids of Future Foundation and the community had a great time!  We look forward to the 2013 Family Field Day.
