The Family Center-La Familia’s BELONG Event was held on Saturday, April 29. The event brought together over 200 guests, including students and their families, local politicians and dignitaries, board members, and center neighbors, for an afternoon of fellowship and fun!
The event featured tasty and festive food and drink, kid-friendly activities, live musical entertainment provided by Widespread Hispanic, an interactive dance presentation, and a special ribbon cutting for the new infant playground.
The event kicked off at 2:00 pm in the north parking lot of The Family Center. Guests were encouraged to participate in guided tours of the early childhood and family resource center, an opportunity to see first-hand, what happens every day in this special place. Donors who attended expressed their excitement in seeing their dollars at work while visiting community members and were surprised at all of the services offered at The Family Center!
The highlight of the day was the special ribbon-cutting presentation that was held for the recently completed infant playground. This special addition to the center was made possible through the generosity of a La Familia donor.
This event was planned as a community connector, bringing families, donors, and community members together in celebration. Sponsors and vendors helped to provide all of the event experiences, including:
