Champions of Commerce Community Service Award Recipient to Host Full Hearts Kids Carnival
Fourteen-year-old middle school student and 2017 Champions of Commerce Community Service award recipient Casey Schaeffer, accompanied by all of her friends, is organizing her 3rd Full Heart Kids Carnival to be held on Saturday, May 5 2018, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., in Chester Meadow on Lakeview Drive in Yardley PA.
The carnival will feature pony rides, a bounce house, game truck, large tent, cotton candy machine, t-shirts, and local mascot appearance, with proceeds benefiting A Soldier’s Hands, Joyce’s Voice for Cats Adoption, and the Full Heart Music Scholarship. She hopes to raise $5,000 for these worthy causes.
The carnival is sponsored by Advanced Merchant Group, Congdon Associates Distributing (Cadco), Bucks County Business Connections, Yardley Makefield Lions Club, PECO, Team Toyota, Penn Community Bank, Joe of All Trades and Baldasari Insurance Agency.
In May 2017, her 2nd carnival raised almost $3,000, of which nearly $2,000 was donated to A Soldier’s Hands. Casey won seven awards at the local, Board of Education, Chamber of Commerce, county and state levels for her efforts; was featured on NBC 10 TV Philadelphia and local media outlets; and was invited to speak at the Yardley and LMT Veterans Day ceremonies.
Additional sponsorship opportunities are still available. To donate or become a sponsor, or for more information about the carnival, please check out youcaring.com/fullheartcarnival or click here to download the flyer.
Casey started Full Heart in 2015 to empower kids to get involved in their communities, and raise funds which could benefit other organizations. She loves helping people, and wants to do as much as possible to assist those in need, while inspiring others to do the same.
Full Heart’s activities have included school supply donations for hurricane victims, lemonade stands, shoe drives, used baseball and softball collections for former little league teammates, and holiday singalongs at nursing homes.
