You are invited to capture in this great visual opportunity as more than 700 students, aged infant through eighth grade, will fly kites at Trinity School For Children this Friday, Oct. 5th in support of Tampa Bay children battling cancer and chronic blood disorders.
“Trinity School for Children is a close knit community, a family. Our motto and mission speaks to creating the citizen who can improve society. When a disease such as cancer strikes one of our students or family members, it becomes a community issue,” says Amanda Matsumoto, Trinity Middle School Coordinator. “We’re aware that there are many hundreds of Tampa Bay families served by the Children’s Cancer Center. By flying kites as a unified student body, we hope to not only show our pride for these children and families, but also raise awareness and funds for this important non-profit organization.”
Please RSVP by email or phone if you are able to come so that I may be on the lookout for you as you arrive on campus; I will be happy to be your concierge Friday morning.

About the Children’s Cancer Center
Helping children and families cope. That is the mission of the Children’s Cancer Center, a local non-profit organization dedicated to serving Tampa Bay families of children with cancer or chronic blood disorders.
“When a child is diagnosed, the whole family is diagnosed,” explains Children’s Cancer Center C.O.O., Patty O’Leary. “Our mission is to provide these children and their families with the educational, emotional and financial relief necessary to cope with the illnesses which threaten to tear their lives apart.”
With 25 programs and services currently helping over 850 families, support is offered to all members of the family and is available throughout every step of their difficult journey – from diagnosis and treatment, to survivorship . . . and sadly, too often, bereavement.
While other organizations are committed to finding a cure tomorrow, the Children’s Cancer Center is committed to helping families cope today. They are dedicated solely to being there for each family through this devastating experience.
One day at a time.
