We are beyond thrilled to announce that GHOST TRAIN IS BACK! (…and better than ever, but only with your help!)
Kitsap Foster Care Association is seeking local Kitsap community businesses and organizations to sponsor a Trick-or-Treating booth at our largest annual fundraiser on October 29, 2022. We are also seeking community groups and organizations who would like to volunteer to set up a spooky scene in the forest to entertain all of the Ghost Train Riders.
The most recent Ghost Train (in 2019) sold out over 1600 tickets to ride the train and welcomed over 2000 people through the park to the trick or treating booths. This is a fantastic opportunity to create visibility for your business or organization while also showing your support of Kitsap foster kids.
If you’re interested in participating in either or both of those capacities, please fill out this short form at your earliest convenience.
Not sure you’d like to make that level of commitment but still want to help out? We can use your helping hands! Fill out this volunteer sign up form:
Gift Pick up: SATURDAY DECEMBER 11th * 1pm-3pm * Bethany Lutheran Church * 151 Tremont St* Port Orchard
