Odessa, FL (May 23, 2017) –In an effort to advance Old McMicky’s Farm’s (OMF) mission to support local foster/adoptive kids and families, OMF was proud to host Old McMicky’s Farm’s Foster Children Fun Day at the Farm on Sunday. This fun-filled, FREE day allowed kids and their families to explore the Farm, interact with animals, enjoy live entertainment, participate in fun farm games, battle in tug-o-war, play in bounce houses and more.
OMF made this free event open to all of the foster children and their caregivers in the Tampa Bay area. “The purpose of the day is to provide our local foster children a great day and great memories for their life, and to thank and encourage all of the foster parents and caregivers who provide safe, loving homes for the children,” said OMF owner Ralph Zuckerman.
The event was provided by OMF in partnership with: Eckerd Kids, the Foster & Adoptive Parent Associations and the Guardian Ad Litem Programs of Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties.
This event is just one of several ways OMF supports the local foster/adoption community. In 2016, the Farm’s Child Adoption Education Day partnered with all the major family support agencies to educate potential adoptive parents and to find more Forever Families for Tampa Bay area children. Over 450 people came out to the event to learn more about adoption, making it one of the largest child adoption education events in the nation. In addition, the Farm also hosts Child Adoption Match days for foster children. To date 15 children have been matched with families at the Farm’s Match Days.
