20th Annual Asian Culture Festival 6-7 March 2010

Post by ribenitez » Fri Mar 12, 2010 11:30 am

This past weekend, our Organization had the opportunity to participate in the 20th Annual Asian Culture Festival in Homestead. On hand were numerous vendors and community organizations. We had a great space where thousands of people passed by and were able to take advantage of the many different materials on Problem Compulsive Gambling.

As families made their way through the festival they would constantly stop by our space to take advantage of the hand giveaways and informative brochures. Additionally, quite a few members of the local medical and business community took note of our specific toolkits on hand.

This event was a great way to start the week of Problem Gambling Awareness in the state of Florida. More so encouraging was the Proclamation later signed by Mayor of Homestead Steven C. Bateman in recognition of this important week in March.
