Celebrating Our 5000th Birthday Party for Homeless Children

Birthday Dreams is so excited to announce we recently celebrated our 5000th birthday at YWCA - Passage Point in Maple Valley.

YWCA - Passage Point is a family shelter that can support 46 homeless families and provides essential housing support while teaching life skills to families who are working to be self-supporting. Birthday Dreams had it's first party at Passage Point in April 2012.

Wednesday, June 21st was a great day for a party. At this party we celebrated 6 June birthday children, and it included our 5000th birthday celebration. The party consisted of cupcakes, ice cream, a bouncy house, face paining, fun games, goodie bags for the guests, gifts for the birthday children and more. The Birthday Dreams Board members and their families volunteered to support this summertime celebration. Our parties are always fun and provide a celebration for all the special birthday children, their friends and close family. Without the services Birthday Dreams provides, many of these children would have their birthday be just another day.

Want to be a part of an event like this? Check out our calendar for future on-site parties and get signed up today! There is no greater feeling than being a part of the party and watching those kids' light up with joy on their special day.
