Monthly Birthday Parties

At Family House, we love birthdays! Whether you’re turning 3, 15, 40, or 70, birthdays are something to celebrate! Many Family House families are away from home for extended periods of time, and most acutely feel the sting of being far from home when special days come up. We do everything we can to make Family House a home away from home, and that most definitely includes celebrating holidays and milestones big and small!

In 2018, volunteers from Salesforce took on the task of hosting the Monthly Birthday Pizza Party. Once a month, there’s a big party in the house for everyone who has a birthday: patients, siblings, parents, grandparents - anyone staying with us! There are presents for the kids, and pizza and cupcakes for all! The support that Salesforce volunteers provide is tremendous, and we are grateful that they hosted this party each month all last year, and are continuing the tradition for all of 2019. Thank you, Salesforce, for the many ways you support Family House families year-round!

K-PAX Racing Day at Family House

Thank you to the K-PAX Racing Team and Flexport for hosting a wonderful car show & party at Family House! Pro drivers Alvaro Parente, Andy Soucek, Rodrigo Baptista, and Maxime Soulet were in the house with a 2019 Bentley Continental GT3 race car and a street-ready Bentley, showing off the cars, signing autographs, and meeting Family House families. Volunteers from Flexport brought pizza and snacks, car-themed games, and arts and crafts, helped out with the bounce house, and more! Thank you to everyone for making it such an amazing experience - special thanks to Jim Haughey, Darren Law, Brendan Capria, Bentley Motors, Flexport, and the whole K-PAX Racing team! And congratulations to K-PAX on your wins this past weekend at the Blancplain GT World Challenge at Sonoma Raceway!

Meet & Greet with Buster Posey

Thank you to the San Francisco Giants for the amazing opportunity for Family House families to meet Buster Posey and family, and enjoy the baseball game afterwards! This past Sunday, families got to spend time with Buster and the family, asking all kinds of questions about baseball from one of the best players in the MLB! We love how Kristen, Addison, and Lee get so involved in meeting families - and they even brought their pup to meet everyone, too! Thank you to the Poseys and the Giants for caring about Family House families and treating them to this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
