Family Night at The Magic House
From far and wide, patient families journey into Kirkwood for a little Magic...the magic of friendship. A fun and free evening to a St. Louis landmark is normally an impossibility, but Friends does that and more. Lines of volunteers serve food to patients, siblings and parents as they are surrounded by entertainment.
This Back to School event was a great evening of fun before kids go back to school. School-aged children received bags full of school supplies to get ready for the year.
These events are only open to patients and their families, so it is a very comforting environment. Parents are able to talk openly about their experiences to others going through the same thing. Parties like the Magic House allow the parents to interact, a place where they can find the support they need. The kids get a much-needed night of carefree fun with friends. And Friends gets to fulfill those needs.
