CHOOSE JOY FOR MELINA! 11:30am-4:00pm

Choose Joy for Melina

In 2020, a group of neighborhood kids lost one of their best friends, Melina.  At age 4, her life was taken too quickly from a pediatric brain tumor. Determined to honor the spirit of their friend, Melina’s ten besties created The Choose Joy event in their front yard; a tribute to their friend’s vivacious, playful personality and a call to action to find a cure for the pediatric brain tumor that took their friend’s life.

This year Melina’s Joy Team decided they had to go bigger and front yards were not enough: This year they are moving the event to The Green in Canfield! Save the date for The Choose Joy Event on Saturday, August 7th from 11:30am-4:00pm and join Melina’s Besties for a donation-based, fun day of face painting, bounce houses, photo booths, giveaways, raffles and more to raise awareness and funds for pediatric brain tumor research!
