JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - One Region 8 family received a great surprise today, an all-expense paid vacation.
According to a press release, members of the group, Baking Memories 4 Kids, gathered at Panera Bread Cafe in Jonesboro on Tuesday to surprise 4-year-old Ariel Smith and her family.
Thanks to donations, Smith and her family will be heading to Orlando for a vacation to Disney World in June.
Smith has undergone several chemotherapy sessions since a diagnosis of germ cell tumors.
According to the release, thanks to a $120,000 donation from several Panera locations, five other families will also be presented with vacations.
The donations come from the Change 4 Children program, a non-profit organization that provides children with life-threatening or terminal illnesses and their families an all-expense paid vacation to the theme parks in Orlando.
