The Adopt-a-bear Back to School Splash 09

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

South Florida Parenting and The Falls host Adopt-a-bear at the annual “Back to School Splash” event. A free family fun event that featured kid-friendly activities and entertainment, while ensuring that Miami-Dade residents have the opportunity of taking advantage of special in-store promotions and discounts on back to school supplies and materials.

Adopt-a-Bear couldn’t resist joining in on the fun and offered its own Gummy Bear Fish Bowl Contest which Allen Cockfield won by guessing 1007 Gummy Bears, the closest amount to 1,155 which was the actual number. Allen has now joined our team and is one of our “kids helping kids” volunteers.

With our special thanks going out to our other volunteers, all members of the Kendall Community Church of God (KCCG) Youth Group, Nikki, Toni, Tasha, Samantha, Jordon, AJ, Diane, Luana and Kenny. You looked amazing in your Adopt-a-Bear T-Shirts.

We received many adoptions from the families attending and loved the pictures taken with our bears. To view the images, please follow the link:

A heartfelt hug to our professional photographer, Dario Maldonado of Prizma Photo who volunteered his time and expertise to the project.

Look for us at our next event on September 12th at The Little Gym in the Kendall Breeze Shopping Center! Thanks Nina.
