The SCV Adventure Play Foundation is set to host its Spring Thing Fling virtual fundraiser on the first day of spring, Saturday, March 20.
The foundation is working with artists, musicians, nature and animal specialists, and game workers, both local and across the country, to build a Zoom full of fun breakout rooms as a low cost/free all ages event in the safety and comfort of your home.
Each breakout room will contain its own activity, demonstration, performance or other event.
Rooms so far include; digital drawing activities sponsored by the Calibraska Arts Initiative, spring-themed musical numbers with Sarah Melnick on a variety of instruments and voices, a zoomed-in interactive virtual hike from Phoenix, AZ, an imaginative adventure with Megan Dickerson from the New Children’s Museum in San Diego, cooking with Shawnee Badger, and more.
Making play an integral part of our daily lives is a goal of foundation and its director, Jeremiah Dockray, thinks more than ever that it’s time to create opportunities for families to play and connect.
“As we head into spring, we want to playfully reflect on the many ways nature invites us to explore and adventure in the outdoors,” Dockray said. “I’m so excited to be working with so many amazing people to celebrate the arrival of spring and raise funds for our gaming advocacy.”
“Although it’s not as easy to be together, we love staying connected through events like this,” he said. “A playful community is a healthy community!”
Major sponsors of the SCV Adventure Play Foundation and Spring Thing Fling include Family Health Center Sam Dixon, 5th District Supervisor Kathryn Barger, and Kaydian Design.
This event is for all ages, tickets range from $0 to $25 and a single family can participate with just one ticket. To get your tickets and more information, visit the event page at www.scvadventureplay.org/springthingfling.
