It was all fun and games in Bluffton as Shirley's Gourmet Popcorn Company shut down part of Main St. for a carnival celebration in honor of Shirley's birthday.

There were free inflatables as well as face painting and carnival games for kids. The store also had popcorn specials and ice cream sundaes available and all of the proceeds from the sales will go to the Bluffton Public Library.

"For us a brand, as we grew, we knew it was important to give back to the community and it dawned on us there was no better way to do that than to continue her legacy of giving and supporting literacy programs," says Dan Stanowick, Communications Director for Shirley's. "That's exactly what Shirley would have done and she would've been tickled to have seen that this is what her birthday has turned into."

The Shirley's Popcorn location in Lima also held special promotions and will be donating 100% of their proceeds to the Lima Public Library.
