We were thrilled to recently sponsor a home school day for the Aurora Theatre’s production of StinkyKids The Musical! As proud supporters of the home school community as well as the Aurora and arts in Gwinnett, we invited home school children throughout the area to attend for free. It was a great opportunity to provide children with a fun opportunity and also raise awareness for our local food banks!
Since tickets were free, we encouraged families to bring non-perishable food items to help support the Holtkamp Can Challenge. Our community has a critical food shortage and our local food banks are working hard to help meet that need. The homeschool families brought 1,000 items that were delivered to the southeast Gwinnett Co-Op!
They also had the opportunity to meet the woman behind StinkyKids The Musical. Atlanta mom Britt Menzies, who wrote the award-winning StinkyKids® books, was at the production signing books and greeting fans.
Everyone had a great time and we look forward to our next opportunity to partner with the Aurora and our local home school community!
