Support the 8th annual Kelsey’s Fall Festival

Lynn Kuhns, owner of Apex Homes, and Kylie Kuhns, would like to invite every modular person within driving distance of Mifflinburg, PA to join them to support this festival in memory of Kelsey who passed away on November 1, 2005, after an 8-year battle with Leukemia.

The 8th annual Kelsey’s Fall Festival is Saturday, October 11th! The Festival will be on the Mifflinburg VFW Grounds, just west of Mifflinburg on route 45 and will take place from 11am to 7pm. Come on over for food, fun, and to support a great cause!

Kelsey’s Dream™ is a foundation that was formed with the mission to make life a little brighter for children with cancer and children in need. Kelsey’s Fall Festival is held in memory of my sister, Kelsey Kuhns, who passed away on November 1, 2005, after an 8-year battle with Leukemia. 

Kelsey’s Dream™ supports Camp Dost, a specialized summer camp for pediatric cancer patients and their siblings.  Kelsey’s Dream™ has been able to fund t-shirts for the campers and counselors (freeing up funding for other opportunities) and provide a handmade blanket for every camper (about 100) every summer. Funds raised are also used for the Snack Pack Program at Geisinger for Pediatric Cancer Patients and handmade blankets and hats are provided to Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant patient in three states. Check out the Kelsey’s Dream™ website to see what other programs we support. 

One new and exciting addition to the Kelsey’s Dream Team is “Hopper the Cancer Crusher”. Hopper is a plush stuffed animal frog dawned with pajamas and a fun ladybug bandana. He has a mediport that will help medical teams explain certain procedures and surgeries that young children have to go through for their treatment. Kelsey’s Dream™ has provided over 5,000 Play Therapy toys to children diagnosed with cancer all across the United States. Go Hopper go!

Kelsey’s Fall Festival will kick off with an old fashioned Apple Butter boil.  Plenty of fun events are planned for the entire day:  Sumo Wrestling, kids crafts, build a bluebird bat or butterfly house, Cake Wheel, Hayrides, Blue Barrel Tractor Rides, adrenaline rush inflatable, win a goldfish, soda ring toss, face painting, sand art, football throw and more. Kids should also keep an eye out for Elmo and Cookie Monster!
