2nd Annual Friends And Family Day Event A Success
On August 14, the Rockaway Children's Network, in collaboration with NYC Department of Parks and Recreation—Sorrentino Center, hosted the 2nd Annual Friends and Family Day event at Bayswater Park from 11:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Community-based organizations came together to provide barbeque food, recreational activities and a DJ. Children and parents were seen having fun eating, dancing and getting their faces painted. Community residents were given the opportunity to talk and learn about the resources in their community. The event culminated with a free raffle, which had donated gifts as prizes. There were approximately 300 people at the event.
