Pumpkins & Pancakes Event Benefiting CASA

see more by

I am very excited to tell you about a special Halloween event coming up on Sunday, October 24th, 2010 at South Coast Plaza {Crystal Court} called Pumpkins & Pancakes benefiting CASA.  My family has gone the last two years in a row and it is SO MUCH FUN!  And I have 4 tickets to giveaway! Keep reading!

Not only is it an amazingly fun Halloween event for your kids, but the money raised helps local abused and neglected children through an amazing non-profit organization called CASA (or Court Appointed Special Advocates) in Orange County. And,  CASA has been kind enough to offer Tiny Oranges 4 tickets to giveaway to this FUN event, so make sure to read below on how to enter to win!

The event takes over almost the entire Crystal Court wing of South Coast Plaza from 8:00am – 11:00am before the mall opens.  Spread out over the three levels, there are tons of fun things kids of all ages will LOVE.   One of our favorites is the incredibly YUMMY breakfast catered by Plums Cafe.  They provide the “pancakes” in Pumpkins and Pancakes and much more with a beautiful gourmet breakfast buffet.

Then there are a ton of activities!  You will find a costume parade (make sure to dress your little ones in their costumes), arts & crafts, dance party, face painting, a live animal show, silent auction for CASA and so much more.

I love that this special event provides OC families with the opportunity to treat your kids to a super fun Halloween party and an excuse to break out their costumes early, but most importantly, by attending you will also be supporting this organization and helping kids not as blessed as your own.  And that in itself is just a FEEL GOOD sort of event for the entire family!

Here are the details!

    This is sort of embarrassing, but we aren’t dressing my daughter up as anything for Halloween. Last year, she was 3 months old and we put her in a duck robe we happened to have. This year, we happen to have a handed down ladybug costume, and I suppose we might put her in it if she wants, but she’s only 15 months old. All she really wants to do on Halloween is eat, poop, and play. Just like every other day.

    I am a Facebook Fan of CASA – OC.
    I am a Facebook Fan of Tiny Oranges.
    And I am a Twitter follower of Tiny Oranges as well.
