What: 10th Annual Kids Helping Kids Spring Carnival
When: Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 10 am to 2 pm
Where: Johns Creek United Methodist Church

Saturday, April 25th, 2015, Johns Creek United Methodist Church Preschool will host it's 10th Annual "Kids Helping Kids" Carnival to raise money for pediatric care at Emory Johns Creek Hospital, Camp Glisson and the Preschool itself.

Attractions will include full-sized carnival rides, bounce-houses, a petting zoo, a toddler zone, the bubble man, and pony rides. Home Depot will bring out a kids' workshop for the children. There will also be professional face painting, snow cones, and sand art. In addition, children will love the over 10 different carnival games that mimic their favorite children's books.

Admission is free, but some of the attractions require tickets. Unlimited wristbands can be purchased for $20 ahead of time or $25 at the door. Tickets can be purchased online here.

Sand art and pony rides are cash only, but tickets, concessions and silent auction will accept charge cards this year.

The carnival's silent auction is a big hit with over 100 items. Ever dream of taking a trip to Tuscany, going on an African safari or sailing in the British Virgin Islands? Want to win an entire orthodontic package from Windermere Orthodontics? How about a relaxing night out with friends at one of Johns Creek's best restaurants? Or treat mom to a relaxing spa get-away for Mother's Day? These are only some of the fantastic items available for bidding. Total retail value of all the silent auction items is over $50,000.

Please come hungry! There will be an amazing spread from several local restaurants: Burgers from Cheeseburger Bobby's, pizza from Marco's, hot dogs from Fagan's Biscuit Barn, and award winning barbecue from a local grill master, to name a few.

All the monies raised with benefit Emory Johns Creek Hospital, Camp Glisson, and the church preschool itself. The hospital has used donations in the past to paint a mural and provide a DVD player and DVDs for the children's waiting room in the emergency department, hang paints in the neonatal intensive care unit and provide toys and activities for children in the birth center waiting area.

Camp Glisson is a United Methodist camp in north Georgia that among its many guests hosts children with special needs (called Camp Sparrowwood) and features a high counselor-to-camper ratio. Last year the Carnival funds went towards a new dining hall that will be completely accessible to all campers. Money has also been used to purchase defibrillators for the JCUMC's preschool and provide scholarships for children whose parents have lost their jobs.
