TARPON SPRINGS – A ribbon-cutting ceremony marks the grand opening of the new Wheelchairs 4 Kids office Thursday, Feb. 21, 5 to 7 p.m., at 1976 S. Pinellas Ave.
The new office will be filled with donated furniture and décor. The event will include music from a live band. City leaders will be on hand and Mayor David Archie will present a key to the city to Wheelchairs 4 Kids.
Wheelchairs 4 Kids was being operated out of the spare bedroom of Madeline Robinson’s home. Robinson is the executive director.
“It was getting a little crazy and had spread to the living room, dining room and kitchen,” Robinson said in a press release. “Fortunately, the community has been very supportive and we have been able to get an office which will allow us to serve more kids more efficiently. We are thrilled!”
The Beachbillies will perform and refreshments will be provided by Coca Cola, PRP Wine, Great Bay Distributors, Subway, Price Rite, Plum Tomato and the Enchanted Oven.
Wheelchairs 4 Kids is dedicated to improving the lives of children with physical disabilities by providing wheelchairs, home and vehicle modifications as well as other assistive devices.
