  1. I had the misfortune of attending the Kidsbash.
    The event advertised (see above) that “Tickets include access to all rides, games, and entertainment”. There was a train ride that went around a small parking lot, a small bouncy house and a climbing wall. The wait for each once was over 30 minutes. There was no entertainment. The SFPD didn’t show. Nor did a fire engine. Didn’t see Hello Kitty, MisterQ or any gymnastics demos during the 2 hours we were there, most of it spent waiting in line.
    The “play games” part consisted of a few of the advertisers’ booths having “advergames”. My son was given a sticker with the name of a camp after throwing bean bags.
    Help a Mother Out may be the most worthy charity out there but drawing in people under false pretenses and having them pay to be advertised to is not the way to raise funds for a worth cause.

  2. Hi Daniel, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback on the event. We were invited by the organizers to participate as the charity partner this year. I will pass on your feedback to the KidsBash organizers, Ghirardelli Square/CBRE. Again, we appreciate your sharing your feedback. – Best, Lisa
