Festival of Children Foundation raises $208,575 for Orange County Children's Charities

Providence Speech and Hearing Center riders
Festival of Children Foundation invited 10 Orange County nonprofit organizations to fund raise at a signature event we call "The Carousel of Possible Dreams."  Over 100 attendees cheered volunteer riders as they went round and round, and up and down, on King Arthur's Carrousel at Disneyland Resort to raise money for their organizations.

The early morning event, held on November 6th at 7:00 a.m., raised $208,575.  Funds raised will go directly to these 10 organizations:

All American Boys Chorus
America on Track
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Orange County
Festival of Children Foundation
Girls Incorporated of Orange County
Make-A-Wish Orange County & The Inland Empire
Pacific Symphony
Pretend City Children's Museum
Providence Speech and Hearing Center
Wyland Foundation

The Carousel of Possible Dreams fundraiser was held in celebration of Festival of Children Foundation's 10th Anniversary.  "How fitting to host Carousel of Possible Dreams at the place where dreams come true every day," said Jill Bolton, director, Community Relations, Disneyland Resort.  "We are honored to host this program, which aligns with our focus on promoting the happiness and well-being of kids and families."
