Annual Community Outreach/Fundraiser SEMO District Fair

EPIC’s annual community outreach and fund raising event at the SEMO District Fair was a great success again this year.  This was the seventh year that the Coalition had a tent at the fair and this year we were able to interact with over 2,000 youth and adult community members and we raised approximately $900 for the organization.  This annual event allows us to meet many people in the community and provide them with information about youth substance abuse prevention.  We rely coalition volunteers to work at the EPIC tent all week and this year there were over 40 shifts for volunteers to cover at the fair.  Forty Six businesses and organizations donated prizes for our event at the fair this year!  We couldn’t have done this without you.  Thanks to all for all your help!
