CHARLOTTE, NC – On January 28, Birthday Blessings volunteers celebrated with the residents of Florence Crittenton Services and Sarah’s House, a transitional housing program for young mothers and their children.  The group celebrated  birthdays  for  two teens and one tot,  and showered a mom-to-be with a  Blessing Basket to help  welcome and support the arrival of her baby.

But now for the party details…volunteers got the party started with a special jewelry-making session, while Mister Twister jumped right in with twisting his beautiful balloons, including a  a colorful hat measuring 4 feet tall for the birthday girl!  The kids were treated to  balloon swords and had fun dueling  the night away.

Longtime Birthday Blessings volunteer Torie Jacobitz and volunteer party coordinator Tamika Bease led our youngest party-goers in custom designing their own sippy cups.  Bailey Dunmire, district manager for Wolfman Pizza (one of our loyal sponsors); Suzi Allora of Suzi Skinny Cakes (thanks for the yummy cupcakes!); and Janet Haas, Birthday Blessings community outreach and media relations representative, and their children were on hand to decorate, serve cake and juice, hand out goodie bags, and celebrate together in Florence Crittenton’s dining room. It was another fun-filled Birthday Blessings party for all!

What a great night!
