Delaware Chapter of MACPAD

St Patty’s Day Pizza Party

 View Original Party Invitation

The Delaware Chapter of MACPAD had a St. Patty’s Day Pizza Party on March 10th.  There was a great turn out of families.  There were tons of food, activities and fun.

The day started with the kids being entertained on a playground, followed by face painting and balloon animals.  We had several princess balloons and pirate swords with pirate faces including live dual reenactments. Older girls enjoyed having their faces painted with glittery designs.  Although there were plenty of crafts and games available the families seemed to enjoy the playground and each other more. 

Dinner followed with salad donated by Bob Evans, low protein pizza, and high protein pizza. Special thanks to Taste Connection for the premade crusts and Cambrooke for the Cheese.  There were tons of compliments, even from our picky eaters. Dessert was enjoyed by all with all Low Protein sweets including cut out Shamrock cookies & Irish Soda Bread (Cook for Love Recipes), cupcakes donated by Applied Nutrition and some delicious Cambrooke Cookies as well as Cinnamon Swirl Bread & Sugar Cookies by Taste Connections. The kids were able to decorate their own cupcakes and cookies to take home or eat at the party.  The Decorating Station is always a big hit.

Families did walk away empty handed.  Tons of left overs were taken home for everyone to enjoy a little St Patty’s Day at home.  Also every family won a door prize, from Pizza Crust Ingredient Mix, Maddy’s Sugar Cookie Mix and Shamrock Plants.

The event was a hit with requests for another event next year.

We even had special guests from Cambrooke, Biomarin and Vitaflo.  I would like to thank our sponsors who donated with both sponsorship and Low Protein Products. Applied Nutrition, Biomarin, Bob Evans, Cambrooke,  Taste Connections and Vitaflo.  Without the support of our sponsors we would not be able to hold these events.  Catching up with friends, meeting families new to PKU,  and sharing ideas is so vital to a successful life with PKU.  Thank you also to Dawn McClymont, Katie Weaver(Cambrooke) & Janet Bamonte for helping with Set Up, Activities and Clean Up!

We look forward to next year!
