We had a great time rockin' along with kids, parent, friends and everyone at the Family Fun Event hosted by our friends at Chick-fil-A Virginia Center Marketplace. The event raised over $90,000 this year for 67 non-profit groups and organizations. In addition, there were more charities and organizations that participated this year than last year. This was the 3rd Annual Operation Cow Drop - Silly Bus had a great time performing and really appreciated the opportunity to have Silly Man and the group come out and support the thousands of people and 1500 plush cows that were thrown out of the plane! Check out the video below :) Silly Man helped a lot :)
Mr. John was MC along with Silly Man - throughout the day. We had our usual Hokey Pokey dance off and gave away some CDs to our awesome winners! Silly Man also wished Kim Grimes Happy Birthday (she was their with her 8 kids and her hub). Folks sang along great with our songs - and really got involved with the ABC song and Chewy Chocolate Chips! CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP :)
Mr. Justin forgot the alphabet, so Silly Man and all of the kids helped him sing the ABCs to make sure he remembered how they went. Thanks to everyone that sang along and helped Justin. Connor and his family (from Connor's Heroes) came out and sang along too!
Silly Bus played from 12:30 to around 1:15pm. Then there was the National Anthem and the wait for the cows. The plane took off and made several attempts dropping a few cows to see how the conditions were. Then on the third drop all of the cows were pushed out of the plane, it was quite a sight.
Thanks to all of the volunteers and Chick-fil-A (WHOO HOO Pam!) for bringing together such a fantastic and fun event!
