After the Ragamuffin Parade on Saturday September, 27, non-profit organization Bay Ridge Cares will hold its 2nd Annual Post-Parade Party in the auditorium of Saint Patrick’s Church, Fourth Avenue and 96th Street.

The event, which starts at 2 p.m., will feature an array of activities for the family, such as face painting, balloon art, raffles, crafts and appearances by Batman and Elsa from the hit animated movie “Frozen.” Music will be provided by DJ Sean Perri. Sandwiches, mac and cheese, cupcakes, gluten free/dairy free pasta and brownies for the kids will be served.

Admission for adults is $20; however, kids can enjoy the event free of charge. A portion of the ticket sales will benefit the World Go Gold fund for pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

“We hope you will come out for a fun afternoon and a great cause,” the organization states via its website.

Bay Ridge Cares originated the “Go Gold Bay Ridge” campaign – festooning the neighborhood with gold bows and encouraging residents join in — to raise awareness for the need for more funding for pediatric cancer research
