Kid Ventures, Floaties and others to partner this Thursday, Feb. 21 for a Military Appreciation Day

CHULA VISTA — Here in San Diego, everyone is keenly aware of the sacrifice our military, and the families of our military, make to keep our country safe and secure. Two companies located in The District at Eastlake, Kid Ventures indoor play village and Floaties Swim School, will show their gratitude this Thursday, February 21st from 6pm – 9pm at 851 Showroom Place as they host military families at their inaugural Military Appreciation Day.

The event, exclusively for the military, will provide parents with the opportunity to relax and enjoy free appetizers, while the children enjoy the unique offerings of Kid Ventures, where they will be entertained with structured games, activities, and arts & crafts. The event immediately reached maximum capacity – more than 200 – almost immediately after the free registration was made available.

“We have been so fortunate to start and grow our business right here in America’s Finest City and every day around us, you see that we owe so much to our military,” noted Kid Ventures co-founder and owner, Darren Solomon. “We see the sacrifice that these families make, and it was a no-brainer to give something back to them. We are honored that they were so excited to sign up and simply cannot wait to host them and provide them with some carefree time.”

The evening will also include grab bags for the first 50 parents, as well as raffle prizes/auction items. Food is being donated to the event by such companies as Garden of Eden, Panera Bread, Broken Yolk, and Islands. “It was so great to see the whole community embrace the idea to make this evening extra special for our military families,” concluded Solomon.

Kid Ventures, founded in San Diego in 2009,will be bringing their unique mix of child entertainment and education to North County when they open their third location (following Eastlake and Pacific Beach) in 4s Ranch this spring.
