Dear Moms & Dads,
THE FOLLOWING IS A VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE :
Sprinkles the Clown (me!) has been a successful professional clown for many, many years, delighting children throughout New Jersey for decades.
Some of you know me personally after having entertained your children numerous times. You know me as a gentle, funny, personable clown-CLEAN, RESPONSIBLE, AND TRUSTWORTHY!
Recently, there has been a “creepy clown” craze which has devastated my business. I have become the target of terrible and continued harassment via phone and the internet.
My message is simple! I am writing this, to dispel any/all rumors about NASTY CLOWNS. Please DISREGARD all the negativity about clowns, particularly ME! The media has totally blown this situation “out of the water”! I LOVE to entertain children (and adults) and will continue to demonstrate my talents to you and your children for many years to come. Thank you!
Sprinkles the Clown (Patti Gonsky)
Once upon a time - an ice cream parlor was born in Chester, New Jersey. Filled with sweet delites and an old-fashioned atmosphere it was the perfect place for parties. But what would really bring the children in?? What would really make them happy??
Patti, the owner--and her husband Larry, had an idea -- "We need a clown for children's birthday parties! Patti, you're really talented and funny--you should be the clown!" "OK," said Patti, "I think that's a sweet idea! I'LL BE THE CLOWN". Looking at all the delicious toppings on the cupboard behind her, Patti exclaimed, "And I'll call myself SPRINKLES!!!"
After graduating from clown college, the parties began and were a HUGE success. When the couple decided to expand the business, Patti took the show on the road. SPRINKLES visited homes, schools, libraries, corporations, restaurants, hospitals, hotels, country clubs, swim clubs, health clubs, senior citizen facilities, etc., etc. and became a BIG HIT!!
