On Saturday, September 9th, Sundance Vacations team members and serval citizens in and around the Carbon County area gathered together to support the First Inaugural Family Promise of Carbon County Family Fun Festival. The event was held at the Penn Forest Recreational Park in Jim Thorpe, PA, and teams registered to compete in multiple activities, including, the fun run/walk, cornhole tournament, and 3-point basketball contests. The event also hosted a multitude of games for children, though the highlight for the kiddos seemed to be the inflatable bounce house! Basket raffle tickets were drawn at the end of the day and attendees when home with great prizes like a fall themed basket, a lottery ticket board, and an 8day/7night vacation to Myrtle Beach.

Delicious food, treats, and sweets were served by generous volunteers. A fresh fish fry was fried up by Sundance Vacations personal trainer and had people flocking to the picnic tables to get a taste!

The best part of all? Our very own team, the Sundance Stunners, completed the 5K walk/run and raised over $240 for Family Promise. Being the team with the most donations, each member won a 2-pack of tickets to the Bloomsburg Fair.
