A spirited team of MC&A Associates spread some holiday cheer at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Honolulu by hosting a Fall Festival for the patients November 26.
Over 25 patients and their families were amazed to find their everyday Recreation Room transformed into a Fall wonderland filled with lights, leaves and country charm. The children were delighted to have their faces decorated with their favorite characters at the facepainting booth and to win prizes at the many Fall themed games. Arts and crafts stations were set up where the kids were able to create their own suncatchers and quilt squares. A Photo Op area with a Fall theme allowed families to take memorable professional portraits which they placed into frames they decorated themselves at the frame craft. Kids were also able to make their own scarecrow friend that they were able to take back to their rooms.
Colorful sweetened popcorn and other snacks were served as well as a cupcake decorating table where everyone was able to the create their own cupcake turkey. A treat that looked as good as they tasted. Everything was washed down with a refreshing apple cider – the perfect Fall beverage.
Throughtout the event, magician extraordinaire – Alan Arita, walked among the kids and astounded them with his amazing slight-of-hand tricks. The day closed with a spellbinding performance by Alan with a little help from some of the patients and their families.
The heartwarming event was a special gift for both the children and MC&A Associates alike with memories that would last a lifetime.
