The HoJo had the enormous privilege of hosting some amazing kids and their families recently from the Starlight Children's Foundation. Starlight creates programs that help brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families. Their "Great Escapes" program organizes fun, family outings so we gave them the keys to the Pirate Ship at our popular Castaway Cove water playground! From the looks of it, they had a blast! This is one of the HoJo's favorite ways to give back to the community, and of course it all comes down to what we do best: FAMILY FUN! It may have been Fall according to the calendar, but it still felt a lot like Summer. Thanks to the wonderful Sarah at Starlight for organizing this event for the kids and making some awesome t-shirts as well!  Everyone from the Captain to the tiniest buccaneer had fun playing together! Here are some great shots of the families enjoying Castaway Cove: We feel honored that The Starlight Children's Foundation dropped by for a visit and hope to see them again in the future.
