Farmington residents David and Laura Judge of Judge Asset Management love Halloween and enjoy trick-or-treating with their six-year-old son.
Judge Asset Management (JAM) located in downtown Farmington wants to add to the annual Halloween Fun Fest, which brings kids to downtown Farmington for trick-or-treating at local businesses. They will sponsor the bounce house at Riley Park during the Saturday, October 28 Haunted Farmers Market, open from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
“It’s a healthy, physical activity to help kids burn off some energy,” David Judge said.
Judge Asset Management has been in the community for more than 20 years. In 2005, the Judges renovated a building on Grand River and moved their offices to downtown Farmington.
The business has sponsored events and charities related to arts and children, so participating in the Halloween Fun Fest seemed like a good fit. As parents, David and Laura wanted to do something other than just handing out more goodies, and they also wanted to preserve some family time.
When Farmington Farmers and Artisans Market manager Walt Gajewski contacted them about sponsoring the bounce house, David not only said yes, but secured the sponsorship with a check the same day.
“It gives us an opportunity to contribute and also spend time as a family,” he said.
