Looking back over all that we’ve been through this past year, we’ve had to make a lot of adjustments. We adjusted to some difficult things like social distancing, wearing masks, and all the harrowing work of our health care professionals. We also adjusted to unexpected things like zoom calls, unmuting and muting, and of course attending meetings in our pajamas pants.

One of the adjustments for Bags of Fun was having to cancel our in person events.

So we are overjoyed to say: we are back! We are back to getting together, playing together, and sharing together.

Whether you are looking for family fun or a luxurious evening out, there are many events going on in all three of the cities that Bags of Fun calls home.

The events themselves are packed with fun, food, and prizes, but what really has us running out the door is the fact that we are going to see our Bags of Fun Family. We have missed seeing your faces and hearing your stories.

After all we have had to adjust to this year, it is nothing compared to the adjustments children with long term illness make everyday. Our organization is distinctive in that it focuses on unique play as a means of recovery for kids in the fight of their lives. Because of that, all of our events focus on play…play for the family, play for kids that aren’t able to play, play for the adults.

Critical illness diagnoses, doctor’s appointments, and treatments did not stop during this pandemic and neither did our important work of delivering Bags of Fun to families in crisis. We hope that you’ll come out and play with us and help us provide joy, laughter, and relief to kids and families for many more years to come.
