UPDATE: The Kids Wish Network’s sand sculpting team won $5000 at the Transitions Sight ‘n Sand event on the 4th of July in St. Petersburg!
Being a non-profit often allows Kids Wish Network to participate in some awesome events. We participated in a special event on 4th of July weekend at North Straub Park in St. Petersburg. The Transitions Sight ‘n Sand Family Event was a sand castle building contest for Tampa Bay Area non-profits. Kids Wish Network, the grand prize winner, took home a $5,000 grant!
The event was hosted by Transitions and took place on July 3 and July 4. The contest was conducted as a vision awareness event where world-famous sand sculptors created a 50-ton sand castle masterpiece showing the importance of healthy sight with the icons of Independence Day.
While the pros showed everyone how it was done, local non-profits, like Kids Wish Network, created their own sand sculpture in hopes of bringing home the $5,000 prize. Kids Wish Network was grateful to win the grand prize. Thank you Transitions and judges for enabling Kids Wish Network to make more kids wishes come true!
