Go Fly A Kite to help support Make-A-Wish Foundation




(Roseville, CA –) -- At Fountains at Roseville, when they say “go fly a kite”, it’s a good thing! Fountains at Roseville is inviting the community to get creative by decorating a special kite and competing in a fun, family kite flying competition. Every Tuesday and Saturday from March 15 through April 16, the community is invited to visit Fountains at Roseville and create their kite. Fountains’ official judging and kite flying party for the whole family will be on April 23, the day before Easter. Each kite costs $2 and 100% goes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Sacramento & Northeastern CA, whose mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

“We wanted to create a signature event that would bring the community together,” explained Gloria Wright, center manager. “And as a bonus, we have an opportunity to help our charitable partner, the Make-A-Wish Foundation.”

The greater community as well as schools, girl and boy scout troops or any community organization is encouraged to participate in not only donating and enjoying a kite but participating in the final judging and kite flying party on April 23, 2011. Kites must be purchased through Fountains to be eligible during the demonstration classes.

“We are grateful to have a community fund-raising partner like Fountains at Roseville,” said Kennan Bridge, CEO of the Sacramento Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes in 24 counties in Northern CA.
