On Saturday, November 30, the SEED Foundation will be hosting its third annual Snow Bash at Tom Varn Park in Brooksville. The event kicks off at 10 a.m. and goes until 3:00 p.m.
The organization will bring in more than twenty tons of snow for the children (and adults) to play in. So, for the “snow birds” or transplants that miss the winter wonderland or for those who have never had the thrill of experiencing the fluffy white material, this event will provide a great opportunity for some fun. There will be a sledding area in which sleds will be provided for the attendees to sled down a natural hill in the park. It will also feature food, local vendors and live entertainment.
“We will have a toddler zone and snow experience zone for children to play in. We’ll also have children's activities at most of our vendor stations. For example there will be a bean bag toss, coloring, etc. Santa and Mrs. Santa Claus will be there as well as some super heroes, such as Wonder woman and Princess Elsa,” stated SEED Foundation president Judy Mastro.
Admission for the Snow Bash is just $5 per person, making this an affordable event for the whole family. Parking is $3.50 (CASH ONLY). Proceeds from the parking will be donated to the volunteer students and the Hernando County Education Foundation.
You can purchase tickets at the door or in advance by logging onto their website: www.TheSEEDFoundation.org. Members of SEED will also be selling tickets on Friday, November 22 from 3:00 until 6:00 p.m. at the Jerome Brown Community Center in Brooksville.
Sponsors for the event include Norcom Mortgage, Attorneys Whittel & Melton, Benes Career Academy, Vans Cars & Trucks, Family Chiropractic Center for Wellness, Comfort Control Air Conditioning & Heating, Coffee News, Boomerz Magazine, Terlep Chiropractic and Kiwanis of Brooksville Ridge.
The SEED Foundation will be launching its Castle Project at the Snow Bash and proceeds will go towards making this ambitious vision a reality. Planning for the Castle Project has been in the works for a couple of years.
The Castle Project will be a community hub with a wealth of information, along with meeting rooms, banquet hall and theater. It will be built in a modern castle style and will include a gift shop, cafe, thrift store and walk-thru museum. On the castle grounds will be a 24/7 day care/life learning center with fees based on a sliding income scale.
“Our hope is to encompass senior citizens, who would actually live on the property as well, to help with the children by volunteering some of their time to play games or assist in teaching. There are many lonely seniors that would love to spend time with children,” commented Ms. Mastro.
“We are hoping for much community support considering the necessity of the [Castle] Project,” Ms. Mastro concluded.
So, adults who want to relive their childhood and have some fun playing in the snow or children who want to engage in a friendly snowball fight come out on November 30 to the SEED Foundation Snow Bash.
