Local business hosts special holiday gathering for foster care families

Kids of all ages got into some shenanigans on Sunday.

Nearly 100 foster care families were treated to a special holiday gathering.

Shenanigans Entertainment Center donated time for foster kids to spend the day playing.

The business collects donations throughout the year to put on this special day.

It gives foster care families time to connect and have fun.

One organizer says it’s a chance many foster kids don’t get.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for some of these kids that we work with who have never been here, or whose parents wouldn’t have an opportunity to bring them. So our foster parents come, they enjoy the day with the kids, and it’s a great opportunity,” said Lila Barlow, Assistant Manage, Family and Children’s Section.

This is the third year Shenanigans put on this event for area foster care families.
