2014 Whirl ‘n Twirl a fun-filled Fundraiser for Naples Alliance for Children

We love hearing about fun ways folks incorporate hula hoops in every day life and events and this hula hooping fundraiser sure caught our attention! According to the Naples News, “A fun day full of whirling and twirling to benefit children in the community brought families out to Cambier Park in Naples to celebrate the first annual Whirl ‘n Twirl event hosted by the Naples Alliance for Children.”.

Laura Tichy-Smith at reported Myra Shapiro, volunteer executive director of the Naples Alliance for Children, said “We’re fun people, so if you can’t laugh and have fun with what you’re doing, forget it,” she said. “We wanted something unique, and we noticed there are a lot of hula hoopers in town. Families always come first with whatever we do, and we wanted to do something fun but different and accessible for families, so bring your kids, your grandkids and your dogs.”
