Seasonal Family Programs & Events

In addition to workshops and family meetings the Matty Fund® coordinates free special events specifically for families of children touched by epilepsy. In addition to kid friendly activities these events give families the opportunity to socialize and help build a support system for moms, dads, and kids (siblings are welcome) in a casual and fun atmosphere. Visit our events calendar to see dates of upcoming family programs and events

Matty’s Egg Hunt is held at Matty’s Place Playground and in an adjoining field. In addition to playground fun and snacks, kids will hunt for eggs and the highlight is a visit from the Easter Bunny for photos and fun. In the event of inclement weather, the Egg hunt will be held inside the South Kingstown High School cafeteria just next door.

The Discovering My Epilepsy Pumpkin Festivals are held each year in lieu of an October family group meeting. Activities include pumpkins, hayrides, games, and more. A northern and southern RI location make it easy for families to join us for a fun and festive day!
