Event Information

Calling All Heroes!

This event allows foster children and community children alike to be transformed into the heroes we know them to be. Hero For A Day is for children ages 2 to 18 and is a day filled with tons of fun activities designed to create an educational and fun experience for all of our heroes while we raise awareness about our foster care system and the children in it waiting for their forever families.

We want to also use this event as an opportunity for our community to thank our local first responders and frontline essential members during this health crisis. Without them, we would not be able to hold this event and continue serving our foster community.

Foster children are granted free admission. Non-foster general admission is pay-what-you-can (suggested $25 per child donation).
