We try to focus on events that are typically the most scary for our food-allergic families. Our hope is to create SAFE, fun-filled activities that do not revolve around food. These events are always a huge hit and show our children that not only can they celebrate safely but that they are not alone. There are so many other children living with their same limitations. Their food allergies are just one piece of who they are,
they should not define them. We want to help make this reality.
Spring “Safe” Egg Hunt
We host an annual Spring Egg Hunts for our children! Come on out, bring your family and friends, play games, hunt for plastic eggs filled with SAFE non-food prizes and take a picture with the EASTER BUNNY!! This past year our event was sponsored by Midwest Allergy and Immunology, making it FREE for our group members.
Fall Halloween Party and Trunk or Treat
Our biggest annual event, our Halloween Party and Trunk or Treat! This event is sponsored by Premier Allergy, also making it a FREE event for group members. We have absolutely no food or unsafe items containing allergens on premise. We start setting up for the party early by cleaning all of the tables, chairs or other items the kids will be using. Then we have lots of games, prizes, crafts and activities for the children to enjoy while wearing their Halloween Costumes. After the party, we line up for a Costume Parade and Group Photo outside. This leads us to our Trunk or Treat portion of the event. Participating families decorate their car trunks and we stratigically place them all in lines creating a car-to car format. (Mimicking the door-to-door of Trick or Treat night.) At each car, the kids receive a non-food treat for their bags. At the end, between the prizes they receive at the party and at the cars, they have a bag full of SAFE treasures to enjoy. This event is a can’t miss!
