8th Annual Children’s Fair a Success!

balloonsTWC’S Children’s Advocacy Center (Irniamta Ikayurviat), along with several collaborative partners, sponsored a Children’s Fair in recognition of “APRIL Is Child Abuse Awareness Month.”

Each agency had an educational and informational activity table with educational games, prizes, and healthy walks. Door prizes donated from agencies throughout Bethel were drawn every 15 minutes for kids and adults.

The grand prize, a 10” lap top with an iPod, was won by Maya Ayagalria, daughter of Martina and Moses Ayagalaria. Congrats, Maya!
