Black Light Toga Party Lights Up Cancer Kids
A toga party with black lights and luminescent paint.
I guess you could call it a “GLOga party.” (Cue the groans.)
Ok… maybe not.
At Camp Happy Days, a week long program for kids battling cancer and their siblings (meaning the siblings come too, not that they were also battling—you get the idea), they called it “Techno Toga!”
Every year hundreds of young cancer patients (and their siblings) have loads of fun being a kid again. Dozens of volunteers help create unforgettable, life-changing experiences that help bring a little more light into their lives.
For the Techno Toga, which took place at this years camp (July 2-9), volunteers created props using Wildfire Luminescent Paint, while kids prepared their togas ahead of time, sprucing up their costumes with brightly colored fabric enhanced by black light paint.
Wildfire VioStorm™ fixtures (the only UV-LED fixtures on the market with the power, control, and versatility of a traditional long throw) were set up to get the party started.
“For some of the kids it was their first time at camp,” said Teresa Bishop of Camp Happy Days. “So they were blown away by how cool it all was. Many were like, ‘Whoa! Look at all the cool colors!’ It turned out awesome.”
