One Super Special Holiday Party
Superhero Kids is proud to sponsor the 2019 Children’s Blood and Cancer Center Holiday Party on Sunday, December 8. This special holiday event gives the patients and siblings a chance to get away from the hospital and have a meaningful fun evening spent with family and friends. For many of the patients, this will be the only holiday event they will attend.
This year the holiday party is a Pajama Party complete with a wonderful dinner and dancing. Activities will include numerous crafts, face painting, gingerbread house decorating, jingle bell necklaces, letters to “Santa”, meeting “Santa” and picking out a special toy/toys to take home with them. The families will also be given gift cards to help with holiday expenses. All of these things would not be possible without wonderful supporters and sponsors! If you are interested in donating to this very special event, please contact Samia at email@example.com.
Wishing you and your family a blessed holiday season!

Holiday Party Safety Guide
As you plan your holiday party, remember you also have a responsibility to create a safe and fun environment for your guests. Check out these tips to ensure your holiday party is one to remember for the right reasons!
MIND THE RULES.
Check your lease or homeowner’s association rules about hosting gatherings in your home and/or out on the lawn. If you don’t own your home, check your lease to make sure your in compliance.
CHECK YOUR COVERAGE
Even a quiet gathering can sometimes lead to an accident, such as a guest injury or property damage. Touch base with the office to go over your policy’s liability insurance.
BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR
Let your neighbors know in advance about the event and talk about any issues it could cause with parking. Share your number, so they can contact you first with any concerns. Try to confine the party indoors or in the backyard, let guests know where they should park, and make sure any garbage left public spaces is cleaned up right away. Monitor music and the crowd, so you stay within the limits of noise pollution laws.
PROTECT YOUR PETS
Strangers and loud noises in a usually quiet home may frighten pets. Reduce their anxiety by crating your pup or putting your cat behind a closed door — especially while guests are arriving and leaving.
Take special care with your buffet: Wash your hands before prepping, keep raw meat away from other foods, cook foods to proper temperatures, and keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold.
CARE FOR THE KIDS
Unless it’s a family focused soiree, hire someone to keep an eye on any little ones.
Play it safe: Lock up prescription medications and any electronics or valuables. Also, safely stash guests’ belongings (coats, bags) during the party.
MONITOR THE DRIVE HOME
At least one hour before the party wraps up, stop serving alcohol and serve additional snacks. Organize rides or ride shares as necessary.
