Kisses for Kyle Giving Tree Donation This Holiday Season!

Kisses for Kyle Giving Tree Donation This Holiday Season!

We have a big thank you to give to our Bowfish fam! Due to our amazing community, we raised a whopping $992 to donate to Kisses for Kyle. Kisses for Kyle is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting families dealing with childhood cancer in the Delaware Valley area. The program is currently helping over 1,500 family members. Through various programs, special events, and services, they aid families in need.

Kisses for Kyle was founded in 2001 by mother Sharon Snyder after her son, Kyle, passed from Leukemia at just two years old. She wanted to honor her son’s memory and help others who are going through a similar experience as her family did. The organization believes in alleviating stress through financial assistance and creating special experiences for the whole family to cherish.


8th Annual KFK OC Family Retreat

Bowfish Kids has worked with Kisses for Kyle on several occasions over the past few years. Last summer, Kisses for Kyle brought over 150 local families to Ocean City for their 8th annual Family Retreat in June. Bowfish collected donations from all of you with the goal to raise money for each family member on the retreat to play one game of mini golf!

Throughout the holiday season, we sent out a request for donations as part of our giving tree campaign. This is where we received that huge amount of $992, all of which went towards Christmas presents for children battling cancer. We are also elated to announce that we have matched this amount, and the grand total we donated to Kisses for Kyle this holiday season was $1,984. This would not have been possible without all of you!

In 2018, the Bowfish community raised $786 in donations that went towards gifts for local families in partnership with Kisses for Kyle. We are excited to continue giving back and growing this donation amount each year in our giving tree campaign!
