YMCA of San Angelo Will Host Next Year's Children's Fair
SAN ANGELO, TX – After 30 years of being hosted by Healthy Families of San Angelo, The Children’s Fair will be hosted in 2020 by the YMCA of San Angelo. The annual event has been a staple in fundraising efforts in the city since 1990.
“At the Y strengthening community is our cause”, said Angel Flores, Associate Executive Director of the YMCA of San Angelo, “We feel like it is our social responsibility to continue to give San Angelo organizations the opportunity to raise funds for their own cause while giving the community an event that allows them to engage with their families.”
An average of 100 food, game, activity and entertainment booths are hosted at the fair each year and run by non-profit groups and organizations. The family-friendly fair is a hosted every 4th Sunday of April and it's a great experience for families of all ages.
“We are not looking to re-event the wheel”, said Executive Director, A.J. Moore. “We are simply looking to continue the work of Healthy Families of San Angelo, with the hope of offering an event that allows community leaders the opportunity to serve side-by-side for a greater cause.”
The YMCA is still in the transition phases of the event, but they are excited to take on the challenge of organizing the fair.
"We look forward to working with community leaders to continue the success of the event for all involved,” said Stacy Duffell, Event Coordinator.
