Celebrate The Children's SPOT

Puppets & Patrons is an online, family-friendly celebration that will feature a StoneLion Puppet Theatre presentation, puppet making, a silent auction, and other fun activities for the young and young at heart.

Every year, the therapists at The Children’s SPOT offer high-quality care to more than 700 kids, helping them achieve independence and improve their quality of life as they prepare for kindergarten and beyond. Puppet play is often used at The SPOT to help children role play, learn, and overcome developmental challenges.

Proceeds from Puppets & Patrons will support the Guardian Angel Fund which is used for family scholarships and other important needs.
