Happy Feet Penguins at the Happy Feet Ball

The clip above is of the Happy Feet movie that was originally released in 2006 and now has a sequel that is about to launch.  How does this have anything to do with Fort Thomas you might ask.... the Charities Guild has managed to secure the attendance of two Happy Feet Penguins at their upcoming Happy Feet Ball.

The Charities Guild of Northern Kentucky (CGNK) developed a “Shoe Fund” program that partners with area schools, churches and social service agencies to identify children in need.  The Shoe Fund then distributes $25 shoe vouchers through these agencies to children in need of good warm shoes throughout Northern Kentucky.

“Providing this basic need has enormous benefits.  When children arrive at school with shoes in good condition, school officials report that they are able to focus more effectively on learning,” said a Northern Kentucky school administrator.  The latter part of 2010 proved to be a year of great need.   The CGNK distributed more than 550 vouchers to area children in a 6 month period!  The total value of these vouchers $13,750!  

Understanding the growing need and wanting to do more, the guild is focused on raising money to support our Shoe Fund.  On November 5, 2011 we will be hosting along with Dr. Nicholas Gates Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgery, “The Happy Feet Ball.”   The event at Arnie’s on the Levee will boast a robust silent auction, appetizers, beverages, and music by the coveted Naked Karate Girls.
