“Why did you do all this for me?” “I don’t deserve it. I’ve never done anything for you.” “You’ve been my friend,” replied Charlotte. “That in itself is a tremendous thing.” -E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web We can all take a page out of E.B. White’s classic story at this time of year. Let us all celebrate friendship; it is a tremendous thing. We wish to celebrate our friendships with Alberta Theatre Projects, the Harry and Martha Cohen Foundation, and Willco Transportation. With their support, Kids Up Front was able to invite 398 guests to the “Charlotte’s Web Winter Celebration” on Nov. 19! This annual signature event included:
  • A private screening of Alberta Theatre Projects’ Charlotte’s Web;
  • Pizza, refreshments, dessert;
  • A special plush “Wilbur” for every child (260 pigs were given out!);
  • Wilbur and Charlotte themed crafts;
  • Coloring stations for the wee ones;
  • Photo booth;
  • Face painting princesses;
  • Popcorn for all guests;
  • Return chartered bus transportation for 280 guests.
