Children’s music superstars and Nick Jr. channel favorites The Laurie Berkner Band invite families to celebrate with them at “Birthday Party Concerts” along the East Coast this year.

Kids can wear a favorite party hat and bring their own birthday cake artwork (visit www.laurieberkner.com to download a picture to color).  Families are encouraged to bring new children’s books to the venues, where they will be collected and donated to Kids Care Clubs (www.kidscare.org).  The organization’s “Parties With A Purpose” program promotes the idea of kids giving back to their communities in lieu of receiving gifts at birthday parties. The items collected at the venues will go directly to children in need in each city.  Says Laurie, “It’s important for us to give back to the communities we perform in.”
