Donations from parade attendees will benefit the DMACC Child Development Center
Children from the DMACC Child Development Center will participate in a “50 Cent Children’s Parade” at 10:30 a.m. on Thurs., June 20th, to celebrate the Center’s 50th Anniversary on the DMACC Ankeny Campus.
As part of the “reverse parade” format, about 25 children from the Center – ranging in age from eight weeks to five years old – will collect donations as they walk, ride bikes and trikes, or get a lift in a wagon around the parade route.
So, bring some quarters and join the fun! The suggested donation amount is – you guessed it – 50 cents per child. All donations will benefit the DMACC Child Development Center.
Thursday, June 20, 10:30 a.m.
The parade will last approximately 30 minutes.
