An or­ga­ni­za­tion that grants lifechang­ing wishes for chil­dren with crit­i­cal ill­nesses is get­ting a boost from a Kings County busi­ness.

The sec­ond an­nual Cap­i­tal Paper Sum­mer Car­ni­val in sup­port of Make-a-wish was hosted at the Cen­ten­nial Arena in Kentville on June 2.

“This year it’s been steady,” said Cap­i­tal Paper mar­ket­ing co-or­di­na­tor Priscilla Cou­ture.

“It’s huge.”

Va­ri­ety was the name of the game at the car­ni­val. The event fea­tured live mu­sic, car­ni­val games, snacks, a bar­be­cue, in­flat­able bounc­ers, and photo ops with Pikachu and Cat­boy.

The goal was to cre­ate an event that raised funds for an or­ga­ni­za­tion that reg­u­larly makes a dif­fer­ence in the lives of lo­cal fam­i­lies. The car­ni­val idea seemed like a fit­ting way to make this hap­pen, Cou­ture said.

“If you’re rais­ing money for a kids’ char­ity why not make the kids a part of it?”

Cap­i­tal Paper is a dis­trib­u­tor of pack­ag­ing prod­ucts. The com­pany’s in­au­gu­ral sum­mer car­ni­val fundraiser was hosted in Cen­tre­ville.
