May 4th was an exhilarating morning to help The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio with the 4th Annual Bed Race! This fundraiser is an incredible family-friendly event that helps bring together so many folks from the central Ohio community for a great cause, turning an empty house into a home!
The Bed Race teams really stepped up their game this year with lots of creative costumes and bed décor creating lots of anticipation and energy on race day!
Tupelo Food Truck and the Broke Johnny Food Truck were set up along the spectator area, next to the Kids Zone which sponsored by us!
Children were invited to ride Big Wheels and set up under the big white tent were Face Painters, Balloon Artists, and Caricature Artists. Families of all ages enjoyed the fun. Treats and trinkets from bouncy balls to slap bracelets were gifted to the children and smiles were bountiful!
Celebrity judges included Trisha Moore from Sunny 95 Radio and our own, Sue Lusk-Gleich. The judges helped award prizes for Best Costume and Best Bed. The team who created a Millennium Falcon replete with Chewbacca and a team of Storm Troopers won the Best Bed Award.
Best Costume went to the Wizard of Oz inspired team from Sauder.
