Silver Sparkles, an annual family fun day to raise funds and awareness for Brain Tumor and Brain Cancer research, will be held back at Competitive Edge Athletic Performance Center (14819 Persistence Drive, Woodbridge) on March 2. To date, the event has raised nearly $40,000 for brain cancer research.

Businesses can join the event at various sponsorship levels, with basic table sponsorships starting at $150. Space includes promotion on the popular PwcMoms website and Facebook page, used by many families in Prince William County.

Families may attend the event by purchasing a family ticket, just one per family, through eventbrite. The event begins with a Magic Show sponsored by Gray Realty Group from 12:00-1:00 p. m. The main event is from 1:00-4:00 p. m., with moon bounces, face painting, tennis, hockey, and more, for children and their families to enjoy. Food and snacks will be available for purchase. Raffle tickets for prizes donated by the community will also be sold.

All proceeds from the event this year will be donated to the Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University. Kristina Kotlus, the event founder and owner, was treated there during her initial cancer diagnosis in 2013 and her relapse in 2017.  “This cause is obviously near and dear to my heart, and I am so proud to be able to support others with money for more research, and hopefully, more cures,” said Kotlus.
