Northshore School Foundation to host second annual Family Fun Day

The All In for Kids Family Fun Day will be June 8.

The Northshore Schools Foundation (NSF) is set to host its second annual All In for Kids Family Fun Day at Pop Keeney Stadium.

All In for Kids is the foundation’s largest annual fundraiser. The foundation recently held its 16th annual All In for Kids breakfast and luncheon in April.

According to NSF executive director Carmin Dalziel, the foundation wanted to find a way to give back to the community and say “thank you.”

Last year, the foundation launched the first All In for Kids day.

“Last year was so much fun,” Dalziel said.

Dalziel said this year’s event will be “bigger and better” with more performances and more arts and crafts for kids.

“We wanted to have more kid-centered activities so we have Snapdoodle Toys coming,” Dalziel said.

Another change to this year’s event is the music and performance art. Dalziel said the musical performances will be closer to the end of the day as to better accommodate families’ needs.

“Some families said they would have preferred to have the music toward the end of the day to better fit with their busy schedules,” Dalziel said.

The art and music performances this year include: Hollywood Hills Marimbas, Frank Love Ukuleles, SAS Music Program, Culture Shakti and Gypsy Temple.

“We’re really excited for our performances,” Dalziel said. “Culture Shakti is a great cultural dance group that will expose kids and families to different dances from around the world.”

Culture Shakti performs Bollywood, belly dancing, Bhangra and Rajasthani dance.

Seattle band Gypsy Temple is known for making a positive impact on mental health through their music, especially with their recent single “Today.”

This year’s sponsors include Inspirus Credit Union, Pacific Medical Center and Ontra Marketing Group.

“We’re just so happy to have this event again,” Dalziel said. “We really want people to come and celebrate the end of the year with us and have fun.”

The All In for Kids Family Fun Day will be from noon to 7 p.m. on June 8. The event is free but the foundation would like people to register for the event at the foundation’s website.
