Tickets are on sale now for the “Indian Summer Children’s Festival” at Audubon Greenwich on September 30.

The event is geared towards children of all ages.  Children’s activities include tie-dye, hair braiding, slime-making, painting, yoga, hip hop dancing and sand art.

Families can enjoy food from BoxCar Cantina and other local food vendors, raffle items, wine tasting, and live music from The Trummytones, The Alchemistics and DJ Dandis on the lawn from 2:00pm until dusk.

“Our goal was to create an annual event to benefit The Willow Project that is fun, family friendly and centered on all of Lynn’s favorite things,” said Heather Lowthert, Event Chair.  “Lynn is a Girl Scout that loves camping, arts and crafts, music, dancing, and spending time with her friends and family. She especially loves the Audubon and has helped in the planning every step of the way.”

“I want this to keep on going so when I am older I can help other people going through what I have gone through,” Lynn said when asked about the festival. “I also like being the boss!”

Lynn was diagnosed with High Risk Pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in April and will undergo treatments for the next two and half years.

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  Proceeds of the children’s festival will go towards The Willow Project, a community fund founded by friends to provide foundational support for Lynn’s journey to overcoming cancer.

Tickets are $20 ($25 at the door) Children 3 and under are free.
