The 7th Annual Free Ice Cream Social benefiting Kate’s Kart will be held on Saturday, June 20, 2015, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at Riverside Gardens, 14701 Schwartz Road, Leo, IN. This event is open to the public, and will feature free ice cream, kiddie rides, games and prizes, inflatables, plus live, family-friendly music and entertainment. All activities and performances are free, with donations accepted to support this organization’s mission. Hot dogs, chips and drinks will be available for purchase.

Kate's Kart is a not-for-profit organization that supplies free books to hospitalized children to keep for their enjoyment. Our goal is to promote literacy and encourage children, and their families, to read on an ongoing basis. Kate's Kart was founded in 2008 by the Layman family in memory of their daughter, Katherine Anne Layman (affectionately known to family and friends as "Baby Kate").

In just over seven years, our organization has grown to service 16 area hospitals, plus several pediatric offices. We currently have over 100 volunteers collecting, counting, sorting, labeling, stocking and distributing books. In May of this year, we handed out our 100,000th book to a hospitalized child.
