AVON, Mass., Nov. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jordan's Furniture in Avon is hosting a private viewing this Sunday morning, November 20th of the historic "Enchanted Village" holiday display for families adopting children from state foster care.
In honor of National Adoption Month, Jordan's Furniture will welcome over 500 guests from these special families to tour the Enchanted Village on Sunday, November 20, from 9:00 – 11:00 am before the store opens to the public. The event is for families who have adopted a child from state foster care.
In addition to the iconic Enchanted Village display, guests will be treated to a light breakfast, the Polar Express 4D Ride, the Holiday Laser LITE Show Spectacular, Santa, and an indoor skating rink called Enchanted Ice.
The 8,000-square-foot Enchanted Village attraction includes dozens of mechanized figurines and animals in a traditional New England holiday scene. Originally displayed at the Jordan Marsh department store, the Enchanted Village hadn't been open to the public since 2006 until Jordan's Furniture re-launched the fully restored display in 2009 and added to the experience with new attractions.
For over 16 years, Jordan's Furniture has partnered with the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) and the Massachusetts Department of Children & Families (DCF) to help find permanent families for children in foster care. Jordan's Furniture has hosted adoption events to educate the public about adoption from foster care and facilitate matches between prospective adoptive parents and children in need of adoption. This "Enchanted" event is a thank you from Jordan's to the families who have stepped forward to give children in state care a loving, nurturing home. To date, over 350 children have found adoptive families through the Jordan's initiatives.
"We are thrilled to continue our support of the adoption community," says Eliot Tatelman, President and CEO of Jordan's Furniture. "We meet so many wonderful children and families through our initiatives. Celebrating the families, especially during National Adoption Month, is what it is all about."
MARE is a private, non-profit organization, founded in 1957 to find "a permanent place to call HOME" for children and teens in foster care, including sibling groups and children who are traditionally harder to place.
