An “Evening of Goodwill”
“”Be grateful you’re not in the forest in France
Where the average young person just hasn’t a chance
To escape from the perilous pants eating plants
But your pants are safe, you’re a fortunate guy
You ought to be shouting how lucky am I”
- Dr. Seuss, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?
As much as we love creating superior products for you and your child, we also enjoy giving back to the community. For the second year in a row, Bumkins is proud to be participating in Goodwill of Central Arizona’s “2010 Evening of Goodwill: Denim and Diamonds.” We have donated a wonderfully whimsical Suessian basket, filled with enough Seuss gear to turn your child into a Who! You can bid on this basket and many other fantastical items during the silent auction, as well as meet over 350 local community leaders and supporters at this evening affair.
