Kidsville News, published by Denton Publications, is circulated to thousands of young students throughout northern New York State. The newspaper encourages youth literacy through presenting topics of history, art and science in a child-friendly style, as well as offering useful information to teachers and caregivers on nutrition, household budgeting, child safety and parenting. A total of 16,000 copies are printed and circulated monthly.
Rosenthal said the donations on behalf of the sponsors, including Denton and Kidsville News, were much appreciated. She said the money raised will go to help fund the Museum's ongoing cultural exchange efforts between hundreds of students locally, partnering with their counterparts from all over the world.
"The event was a lot of fun and showed a lot of creativity," she said. "The celebrities who helped us out were real angels."
