YORKTOWN, N.Y.-Support Connection will host a Sunday Fun Day from 12:30 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 14, at Solaris Sports Club. All proceeds from the jam-packed family fun day will benefit Support Connection’s free breast and ovarian cancer support services.
The event is being organized by Marissa Shapiro, a Lakeland High School student participating in the school’s civic internship program. While interning at Support Connection, Shapiro has been learning the skills necessary for event planning. Her mentors at Support Connection, Executive Director Katherine Quinn, along with development and outreach coordinators Marisa Giuliano and Melissa Higgins, are eager to see the culmination of Shapiro’s efforts at the January function.
At this family-friendly event, people of all ages will enjoy dancing at a one-hour Zumba lesson (from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.). There will also be various children’s activities, basketball, badminton, and volleyball throughout the afternoon. Snacks and refreshments will be served, and a raffle will also take place. Admission is free and everyone is welcome; no RSVP is necessary. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
“I believe that this fundraiser will be a great way to get families out for a day of fun, and to help benefit Support Connection while raising awareness about their free breast and ovarian cancer support services,” Shapiro said.
