After an amazing kick-off year, we wanted to send our sincere thanks for supporting our event. We were able to raise over $10,000 to split between the fundraising efforts of Mickey’s Kingdom Playground and Stoplight City Playground.

Now that Mickey’s Kingdom has been built, we are focusing our efforts towards Stoplight City and the Trolley Playground piece.
