A special day of fun and play at Carowinds and other Cedar Fair parks

This Sunday, several Cedar Fair theme parks will host children who, for various reasons, are underprivileged.  Various state and local agencies will participate and bring the children to the Carowinds park, Knotts Berry Farm, Cedar Point, Canada’s Wonderland, Michigan’s Adventure and Soak City.  The event is a tribute to Shirley Slesinger Lasswell who passed away last year.  She was most known for her association with the Winnie the Pooh franchise.  She licensed the characters to Disney and then later sued them over royalties.  Her daughter, Pati, says that her mother wanted to bring joy and smiles to children.  This event is one way of doing that.
