Join the Illumination Foundation’s Carnival for Kids

Bring your family out to celebrate the new school year alongside Illumination Foundation’s families! This thrilling day will include: Rides, games, food, and live music! Free admission and free parking will be provided. All proceeds will benefit homeless families in Orange County! For additional information, please contact Caroline Horstmann at chorstmann@ifhomeless.org You can also help sponsor a child. Many of us think of summer as a wonderful, happy time when kids can be kids. For as many as 32,000 unstably housed children, however, this is far from reality. This summer, The Illumination Foundation is aiming to sponsor 600 children to attend Carnival For Kids, and give these kids an opportunity to enjoy summer, experience a day of fun, and prepare for the school year. With each sponsorship, a low-income or unstably housed child will receive: an unlimited ride wristband, a food, drink and dessert meal ticket, and school supply carnival prizes to get them ready for the new school year!
