Games, food and family fun fill the evening. Additionally, members of the Board of Directors host bake sales and other events to raise additional funds.
Each year the Kolton's Karnival Board of Directors accepts applications from area families in need. A benefactor is selected and the proceeds from the year's events contributed to that family. Additionally, the child becomes hero for the day at the annual carnival. They arrive at the event as the grand marshall of the parade! It's the Kolton's Karnival Board of Directors goal that they enjoy the evening as much or more than anyone else in attenance!
In July of 2014 the first ever Kolton's Karnival was held to benefit Kolton LeClair, a local boy battling cancer. The event was an overwhelming success!
Supporters soon joined forces to create a 501(c)3 non-profit and continue the tradition of helping local families facing financial hardship due to a sick or injured child.
The underpinning of the fundraising is a youth-oriented carnival held each year at Douglas KOA.
