Family Festivities

Making time for "quality time"

Our Family Festivities Program is an ongoing program, one in which each family participates three times each year. The families we serve carry weights of their own, and often find it difficult to organize outings for their family. The Casey Cares Foundation makes an effort to support the intellectual, emotional, and social development of our children with a multitude of different art, entertainment and culturally related activities to make sure they get rare and important experiences.  Children battling critical and terminal illnesses sometimes don’t get to learn about the world outside of a hospital.  Our experiences increase the scope of the child’s knowledge and keep their dreams and passion for life strong. 

When the children are feeling well, a trip to the zoo or an amusement park with their family can become an invaluable memory. Even if a child is not well enough for an outing, we provide ways for the whole family to spend quality time together. Movie & Pizza NIghts can be a great way to enjoy a quiet evening, either at home or at the hospital.  Breaking up the routine of treatment can aid families in improving the outlook on their situation and not suffering from depression or anxiety.

Our sole focus when planning these activities are the interests and abilities of our families.

In addition to providing tailored activities, we try to be mindful of the logistics that a family with a critically or terminally ill child may need to handle when they go out. Our staff works hard to make sure families receive vouchers for parking and food. This way, a family whose child is weak or wheelchair-bound can have preferential parking, instead of making expensive garage payments and parking a long distance from the venue. Covering these additional costs is another way that the Family Festivities Program allows families to enjoy an activity without any financial strain.  

Testimonials

We cannot thank you enough for the Great Adventure tickets. Our family really needed a getaway day. The little things in life keep us going every day!

The McGroarty Family

Thank you again for the amazing invitation to come to the event last week at Camden Yards. Words cannot express how much joy you brought to my son that day. So much joy that he actually got up and walked for the first time in a month to hug the Oriole Bird! I will never forget his first steps again as a four-year-old little boy regaining his strength during his battle with cancer. You help provide these little wins that are so valuable to building happiness and hope again in their little lives.
