Family Fun Day at Young’s set for Aug. 12

FVPC, Michael’s House hosting event

YELLOW SPRINGS — The Family Violence Prevention Center (FVPC) and Michael’s House are putting together a Family Fun Day, 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 12 at Young’s Jersey Dairy.

The fundraising event in the Pavilion Area will provide a fun time for families — one example of an important way to engage with each other in entertaining, safe activities — and promote healthy family commitment.

Attendees can buy individual tickets or family-sized packages and receive lunch and all-inclusive access to the various family-friendly activities. Participants can buy tickets in advance at Ticket prices are $20 for an individual, $50 for a family up to four and $80 for family up to six members. Children under the age of six are free. Tickets are also planned to be sold at the event.

All proceeds will go toward funding programs at both Family Violence Prevention Center, which provides services and safe housing to families and children who have been treated in abusive ways, and Michael’s House, a nationally-accredited child advocacy center. Both of these Greene County non-profit organizations serve families and children with distinct missions but will join forces on this day to make new friends and strengthen the connections within the community.

For chances to win free tickets before the event, interested guests can follow Family Violence Prevention Center and Michael’s House Facebook pages for promotional, weekly giveaways.
