This is a super cause for a local family! AG&S Inflatables children’s Entertainment center is hosting the “Bounce for Ashley” fundraiser on 4/16. Admission is $8 per child (up to 10 years old)–AG&S Inflatables has 5 bounce houses, video games and a toddler play area. Everyone’s favorite red furry monster will be making a guest appearance at 6:30 (Bring your camera!) There will be refreshments for sale and raffles! Proceeds will benefit the Barco family. This is their story:
Last summer, 6 year old Town of Newburgh Resident Ashley Barco was playing with a balloon on a stick when she tripped and fell. The stick punctured her eye, went through her brain and hit the back of her skull. After 2 surgeries and 7 months of living in Blythesdale Children’s hospital, she is finally home and growing stronger by the day. However, the journey is far from over–the family is surviving on one income as Ashley’s mother lost her job after spending countless hours at her daughter’s bedside and the uncovered medical expenses are overwhelming. For more information on Ashley’s situation please visit: http://newburghmama.com and scroll down to “Welcome Home Ashley Barco!”
