Wedding Savvy gives back to the Community at Kids 'n' Kaboodle, June 16th 2008

Owner Raquel Shutt volunteered her planning skills to help the Chesapeake Children's Museum host their annual Kids 'n' Kaboodle event in Truxton Park. Debbie Wood, Director and founder of the CCM, descripes Kids 'n' Kaboodle as "an event focused on providing joyous free fun for children of all ages". The purpose of this event is to allow every child, regardless of income level, to enjoy the same things.

This year Kids 'n' Kaboodle hosted a stage with great local entertainers who also donated their time, energy, and product. A big thanks to the most AMAZING Annapolitan vendors who care enough to give back to the community and were a part of our exciting entertainment:

Our fabulous Emcee was Marc Simmons from C and J Entertainment, a great Entertainment company out of Odenton. Thanks to Chris Temple for agreeing to donate this service -- we would have had no sound system without you, thank you!

Our great looking Kids 'n' Kaboodle sign was donated by the NEW! Fast Signs of Annapolis on West Street. Leigh Rand was amazing to work with and provided a speedy turnaround. You can find them on the web at:

Our super clean, bright new tent was provided by A List Party Rentals . We can't thank you engough for taking time out of an amazingly busy weekend to set this up for us -- and, to not charge a penny. Juan and the A list team are a class act for coming through for the children of Annapolis!

Last, but certainly not least, I can't thank my amazing staff enough for donating your time to help with face painting, tatoos, and clean up. I am so proud to work with a team who not only belives in what we do, but the community we live in! A big round of applause to Brittany, Bernadette, and Jeremy - thank you for your time.

It was my sincere pleasure to assist with this event. As a mother myself, I certainly enjoy any event where I can not only give back to the community, but involve my family.
