"Ferdinand" on the big screen and they loved it.

Welcome to our new Marketing and PR gal, Wendy
Russell. We need her help, and she loves the kids
and helping us at the hospitals.. it's a perfect fit!
WOW. We recently went to the hospitals with our
good friends and partners at Spirit Halloween,
Total Nutrition, Vampire Ball & Corbetts Haunted
House to present a check to each hospital through
the Spirit of Children Charity 501C3.
From Shanda Pierce owner of Spirit Halloween's
of Northern CA- "So proud of our 2018 team!
Presented over $150,000.00 to Valley Children’s,
UC Davis Children’s, and Shriners Children’s
Hospitals! Thank you to Total Nutrition,
Sacramento’s Vampire Ball, Goblin Gardens, &
Corbett’s Haunt!! Spirit of Children ❤ Thank you
to all of our customers and employees!!"
The staff at Spirit Halloween does an
AMAZING job at selling these purple
pumpkins that you see on the walls of their
seasonal shops. Each one of these equates to $1
or $5 donated directly to the hospitals for the Child
Life Program. We decided to help several years
ago though Shannon McCabe's Vampire Ball and
have had many of our volunteers go to the stores
and assist in selling the pumpkins! Shannon
McCabe's Vampire Ball also donates about a 1/3
of the profits of the ball to the Spirit of Children.
We cannot stop helping, it's just so fun!
So in comes KOV in 2017... We wanted to be able
to do more throughout the year by going into the
hospitals and doing fun activities with the kids. We
had an ice cream party for them where Jess, from
Devil May Care Ice Cream donated all the ice
cream and the kids loved it! Our buddy, Gary
Martin, dressed up like a pirate and we served up
scoop after scoop!
Wendy Russell, Leslie Breitsprecher and I all
painted faces and played Halloween games with
the kids one day with the Spirit Halloween
We've just purchased a really cool projector and
screen and plan on doing Movie afternoons at UC
Davis for the kids and parents waiting on test
results... We hope this will help them pass the time
a little better. Stay tuned, there is so much more
Shannon McCabe, President
UPDATE 12/31- We feel we ended our first year
with a BANG! We were very pleased to partner
with the Crawfish and Catfish Festival who made
us an awesome $3000 donation for helping them
out! We started a great plan for 2018 and bought
some really cool stuff to take to the hospitals...
UPDATE 11/26- Shannon here, so we are up to 5
Ipads now, a Yamaha piano and 2 "treasure
chests" for the kids, full of so much costume
jewelry and treasures... The kids LOVED these.. If
you have any costume jewelry you don't want, we
would LOVE to give it to the kids!
UPDATE 9/25-Our World's Greatest Ice Cream
Social and our donation from the Crawfish Festival
helped us to raise enough profit to purchase 5
iPads and we also got an electric piano donated!
We are collecting the iPads and buying kid proof
cases for them as often as possible! We'll keep
Why are we raising money?
Our mission for2017 is to purchase as many IPads
as we can wrangle for the kids at UC Davis
Children's Hospitals and Shriner's of Northern CA.
The Ipads make lying in bed less boring, the touch
screen helps with dexterity, and they are just all-
around fun. So help us out if you are able! We
sure do appreciate your donation!
