Winter Family Carnival
We are thrilled to share that City Harvest Presents The Virtual Winter Family Carnival 2021: Neon Dance Party raised enough to help feed more than 130,000 NYC children and their families for a day.
This electric, stay-at-home event, hosted by Madeline and Anna Zakarian, brought together NYC families in support of City Harvest’s work feeding the 1 in 3 children and their families in New York City who are facing food insecurity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The fun began with every child receiving their very own Party Box, delivered to their doorstep, filled with everything to bring the party home. Guests also gained access to our interactive event site, which was loaded with immersive entertainment for the entire family to enjoy together!
Party Box and Entertainment Highlights:
- One of a kind craft kit with instructional video and materials provided by New York City favorite, The Craft Studio! Featured craft projects include: make your own glow-in-the-dark slime, white chocolate lollipop decorating, and design your own echo sing-along microphone!
- Make your own kid friendly, delectable Neon Cooler punch kit, served in a festive juice pouch, with out of this world glow garnishes, and silly straws, and instructional video led by Food Council Member Cody Goldstein of Muddling Memories.
- Entertainment partner On The Move’s talented DJs and performers will keep your Virtual Neon Dance Party going all night long! Learn the latest moves to your favorite TikTok-style dances, belt it out with specially-curated beatboxing performances, karaoke, and sing-along songs, enjoy electrifying LED and UV blacklight dance performances, and mesmerizing glow magic performances!
