Mr. Sadler told the students he has gone to the circus for 30 years, and he shared how the Shriner Organization holds the circus as one of their fund raising events to help them pay for children in need of medical care at Shriner Hospitals. There are 22 non-profit Shriner hospitals in North America.
The Shriners graciously pay for all third graders in Kosciusko County to attend the circus in Fort Wayne each year! Kids that enjoy their day at the circus may want to come back to see more of the entertainment and even visit the animals with their family on another day! These additional visits and ticket sales to the event, help support the charitable contributions that the Shiners make to those 22 hospitals!
