Columbus Kids Choice Event
COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – A local young entrepreneur is raising money to give back.
25-year old Roderick Smith owns and operates Kids Khoice.
Kids Khoice is a kids’ event hosting and planning business.
Saturday, Smith hosted a “fun day with characters” at Leigh Mall in Columbus.
Kids of all ages had the chance to take pictures with some well known kids’ cartoon characters.
Smith says today was just a nice way to end spring break. The money raised Saturday will fund a future community project Smith is planning.
“The money I get from this. I just reinvest in my next project . I’m getting ready to do a fun day in the park for kids in June and there will be hamburgers and hot dogs and jumpers and it’s just something for them to do for the summer,” said Smith.
Smith says the best thing about his job is seeing the smile on the kids faces when they see their favorite character in “real life.”
