St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is like no other – ­ for 52 years St. Jude’s has been treating and researching fatal illnesses. On Saturday, June 14th, at Aviator Sports and Events Center, they held a family fun day ­ to bring all families together for a one day event to let off steam and to enjoy a day in the sun!

Family Fun Day included: Carnival games such as The Dunk Tank, where kids threw a ball at a target, and made a person fall inside a tank filled with water. There were also boxing challenges, test your strength games, The Hoopla: a game where you throw a ring, get it on a peg and win a prize. Ball shooting games, fishing games, and creating sand bottle art. Kids and adults were able to get their faces painted, play and take pictures with cartoon friends like Dora the Explorer, Sponge Bob Square Pants, Ariel the Little Mermaid, and many more. There was also live entertainment to engage the crowd with a live band, jugglers, and a funny guy on stilts.

Inside the Aviator Sports Field House was the St. Jude Auction House, set up to raise awareness and give support to families who are going though troubling obstacles. Attendees enjoying a BBQ lunch while listening to young adults, children, and parents tell their stories about what St. Jude’s has done for them.These inspirational stories encouraged people to take part in the auction and bid on very beautiful and
rare item, with 100% of all profits being donated to St. Jude Children’s Research center.
