Lanyard Ladies Hosts Slime-Making Contest Fundraiser for Child With Cancer

Lanyard Ladies Hosts Slime-Making Contest Fundraiser for Child With Cancer

The fundraiser will directly benefit Taliyah Babtiste, who is actively battling cancer.


The Lanyard Ladies, a unique children’s birthday party place located in Oceanside, will be hosting a fundraiser on March 31 for Taliyah Babtiste. Babtiste is a 9-year-old girl from Freeport, Long Island. She was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Giloma. In response to her diagnosis, Lanyard Ladies would like to bring the community together to help Babtiste and her family with the enormous hardships they are experiencing from the mounting medical costs. Babtiste loves to make the ever-popular slime, hence the inspiration for the slime-making contest fundraiser. The Lanyard Ladies, as experts in slime making, do slime birthday parties and events all over the tristate area. The fundraiser is way to bring the children of Long Island and all across the five boroughs to do what they can to help a child and her family in need.

The slime-making contest will be on March 31 from 12-5pm at Lanyard Ladies's birthday party store located at 433 Merrick Road, Oceanside. Participants are encouraged to stop by anytime. Kids are welcome to bring in their homemade slime and enter it into the contest. The winner receives a playdate with six of their friends for an hour of making fluffy, clay, floam, and snow slime. Pizza and drinks are included and the winner will be posted on the Lanyard Ladies's website and social media outlets.

Children are invited to come in and make slime noncompetitively as well. There will be raffles for fun prizes and amazing baskets as well as glitter tattoos and face painting. Local store owners will be donating food, crafts, prizes, and more to help make Taliyah’s day the best day ever.

The cost to enter the slime contest is $15. Children can also participate in making slime for a fee of $5. All proceeds go directly to the Babtiste family.
