Rockaway WISH Hosts Kids Event; Honors Local Heroes
The Rockaway Wish put on the first WISH Rocks event. The event was a children’s concert honoring some of our local “heroes,” children who suffer from various childhood diseases. Children listened to music from the Belle Harbor Music Studio, DJ’s @ Work with MC Meghan Courtney and DJ Joe Hutton. Students received free Face Painting from Whimsy & Company face painting by Gina and Laura. Children also enjoyed cotton candy from NY Kids Time. T-shirts from Big Dog Imprints were sold to help cover the cost of the day.
The children seemed to have a blast dancing and enjoying the many activities. The event was funded by the Rockaway WISH and generous donations from the Graybeards and Rockaway RIBS; and Father Richard Ahlemeyer is to be thanked for the use of Springman Hall.
