Our office is privileged, once again, to have the opportunity to bring our Good Humor Ice Cream truck filled with ice cream for the children and families at the 30th Annual Kids With Cancer Holiday Party. Many children in our area are afflicted with cancer during this time of the year and therefore have a difficult time enjoying the season. Realizing this, in 1986, this organization hosted the first Kids With Cancer Holiday Party and have carried on this tradition.

Kids with Cancer provides a special day for the entire family complete with presents, food, drinks, entertainment, dancing, games and even a visit from Santa Claus, and of course, the ice cream. This wonderful event gives them an opportunity to temporarily forget about their illness and have one day of normalcy. It will be held at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on December 4th.

If you have any questions regarding this event please contact Norm Haglund at 727-458-3726.
