Princess and Superheroes Party Planned to Help Animal Rescue | Local News

ASHTABULA TOWNSHIP – A Princess and Superhero Party is planned for April 2 to raise funds for Helping Hands Farm Animal Rescue.

The party will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Ashtabula Towne Square.

The children will meet the princesses and the superheroes, receive an autograph book, a drink, a cookie and a choice of a slice of pizza or a hot dog. Admission is $10 per child 2 years and older. Parents enter for free. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

“It’s our way of raising money for the rescue and our Relay For Life team, Pat’s Crew,” said Missy Townsend, Founder and Animal Rights Advocate. “We encourage parents to let their little ones dress up as their favorite character and don’t forget their camera.”

Townsend founded Helping Hands Farm Animal Rescue, a 501c3, on August 14, 2019. Since then, she has helped horses, chickens, ducks, and myriad cats on her farm in Plymouth Township.

“Our job is to take care of the animals and prepare them for their new ‘furry’ homes,” she said.

Donations are tax deductible and can be made on the rescue’s Facebook page or through PayPal.

Tickets can be prepaid through any of the following: PayPal-me/helpinghandsfarm2019, Cash app-$missy6877, or Venmo-Missy-Townsend-3.
