Santa Barbara, CA, April 19, 2011 —Clear out your children’s old toys, show them the value of giving back, and help support pediatric cancer research at the Fourth Annual Kidz for a Cure toy sale and fundraiser.
Kidz for a Cure was spearheaded in 2008 by then eight-year-old entrepreneur Madison Lewandowski who wanted to help find a cure for pediatric cancer while showing her young peers the magic of philanthropy.
Support Cancer Center of Santa Barbara’s Pediatric Oncology Research Fund* by selling your children’s gently-used, clean, working toys, games, electronics, videos/DVDs and books that they’ve outgrown or are ready to pass on.

Those who reserve space to sell items will receive a “Thank You” envelope with goodies from Golf N’ Stuff, Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, McConnell’s Ice Cream, Kingston Candy Co. and more. Meet people, sell your items and raise money for pediatric cancer research!
*Cancer Center of Santa Barbara provides a yearly grant from this fund to Cottage Hospital’s pediatric oncology program for research.
