Friday Night Fun

Friday night social was created to bring social activities for children in shelters after a long week of school. This effort is a platform that allows kids to consistently look forward to Friday Nights. The interactive hour brings excitement as children can win prizes and make yummy desserts.

Hi, my name is Adam and I am 13 years old.  I am passionate about helping others especially bringing fun and games to children less fortunate.  I have partnered with Bake Back America to help facilitate Friday night bingo and cupcake decorating to kids as an escape from their daily routine.
