Family fun for a great cause.

The Taunton Family Children’s Home in Wewahitchka held its fourth annual Family Festival last weekend.

More than 1,000 attendees from surrounding states and some local to Honeyville enjoyed a 5K run, obstacle course relay race, basketball sharpshooting, Frisbee golf and many other events.

Founder of the Children’s Home David Taunton called the fundraiser, put on by the Lynn Haven United Methodist Church, “very successful.”

“To build local awareness we set aside one day each year to spotlight the children’s home and what we do,” said Taunton. “It was a beautiful day, and a good place for a family outing.”

Taunton thanked the community, attendees and the more than 50 volunteers who helped run the event.

The Taunton Family Festival is held each year on the Saturday prior to Mother’s Day.
