Cool Kids All Star Event

    Everyone was an All Star at First Choice America’s Cool Kids All Star Event! And even rainy weather could not stop the fun!  During the 4-day event, children were entertained with inflatable amusements and games.  Each child received a goody bag and were treated to hot dogs, freeze pops, and popcorn.  Local radio station, FROGGY, was on hand for a Live Action Broadcast. FROGGY brought Mister Froggy, who was joined by Kennywood Park’s Kenny the Kangaroo, WTOV9’s Snowbird, and a friendly baseball mascot. All events were free for all children who attended. 
    The festive atmosphere was topped off with great prizes, which included baskets of toys, Kennywood Tickets, Pittsburgh Pirate Tickets, Washington Wild Things Tickets, and Pittsburgh Zoo tickets.
    During these fun days, safety lessons were taught by local police, sheriff, and fire departments.  Chester and Weirton events presented a canine officer show with the local deputies and police force. Kids in Steubenville and Chester learned lessons in drinking and driving through impaired goggles.   Wheeling and Weirton also had their fire departments bring smokehouses to teach the children fire safety.
    Wheeling Park cheerleaders stopped by the Wheeling event and Weirton Madonna Cheerleaders stopped by the Weirton Event. Both squads of cheerleaders cheered on First Choice America with an original cheer.
    The All Star Event was brought to local neighborhoods in Chester, Steubenville, Wheeling and Weirton.  Once again, it was a successful year for the children who attended the events, many of them left with huge smiles on their faces!
