Rosie’s Birthday Club celebrates 1,000th birthday

Staff Report

Rosie’s Birthday Club will be celebrating its 1,000th birthday at Northwest Community Center, 1325 N. Johnston Ave., Rockford, from 4-5 p.m., Wednesday, May 30.

Over the last 1,000 birthdays, Schnuck’s has been generously donating birthday cakes for Rosie’s to help make these celebrations a success. Presents have also largely been donated by Heartland Community Church.

Rosie’s Birthday Club’s mission is to celebrate a child’s special day. The goal is to provide and deliver a present to children in the Rockford area who may otherwise not receive a gift on their birthday.

Rosie’s believes children, no matter their circumstances, should be honored and made to feel special on the one day of the year that belongs just to them.

Rosie’s Birthday Club provides birthday presents and birthday parties for children at Northwest Community Center Boys and Girls Club, Carlson Boys and Girls Club, Second Congregational and RockHouse Kids.
