Everyone is welcome to participate in this event. So be sure to invite your friends! There will be a raffle, a costume contest and of course…. CANDY! CANDY! CANDY!

Big thanks for our sponsors who are providing goodie bags for the event. Thanks to Organic Valley, GimMe seaweed snacks, Pearl’s olives to go, Kashi and Extreme Pizza.

Richmond Youth Media will be creating a video for the event. We’re so happy to be able to involve this awesome organization in our events.

“Our goal is to introduce these kids to a sport that most inner city youth don’t have access to while teaching them to give back to their community,” said event organizer Clari Britz. “Sometimes it’s hard to see our value until we are able to help someone else. Events like this help youth recognize their value and see that they can make a difference in their own lives and within their communities.”
See you Saturday!
