Can you believe MomsCharlotte is turning 2 years old already!?!
Help us celebrate our second anniversary with our Annual Biggest Birthday Bash at Ayrsley Grand Cinemas on April 24. We're joining up with Birthday Blessings and Little Ones Magazine to throw a Mad Hatter Birthday Party, with festivities kicking off at 10 a.m. We'll have face painting, characters, balloon twisting, crafts, sweet treats and more.
Then at 11 a.m., catch the original classic cartoon movie of Alice, the Mad Hatter and the rest of the folks in Wonderland, all on the big screen. (Rated G; 77 minutes) Kids of all ages are welcome. Free admission to the party and movie with a donation to Birthday Blessings of new toys or cash contributions. Birthday Blessings provides birthday parties for homeless children and helps new mothers who are homeless get settled with necessary baby supplies. (See list of needs below.) Ayrsley will sell Kids Snack Packs for $4 each; they will include pocorn, drink, and choice of goodies. Hot dogs, pretzels, and drinks also available.
Ayrsley is located at 9110 Kings Parade Blvd., Charlotte, 28273.
