The Casey Cares Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, will host a Caring Connection Party at the Independence Seaport Museum to provide critically ill children and their families with a heartwarming and uplifting activity where they bond, meet and support each other. At this event, participants can take self-guided tours to see the various ships and maritime exhibits on display. Additional activities include a hands-on craft, scavenger hunt and refreshments compliments of Swiss Haus Bakery. Caring Connection Parties give families an opportunity to focus on fun and relieve them from thinking about their hospital treatments and doctors’ appointments.
