Health Fair Update


The Family Fun Health Fair was a big success!

Thousands of people came to Hamilton Metz park and participated in dozens of health screenings, bouncy rides, face painting, a basketball contest, Darryl Dawkins celebrity signing, the music of Shem's Disciple, Y-Love and Chaim Fogelman as well as young people from C.H.A.O.S. "getting light!" The event was exactly what it was planned to be--a fun event that was enjoyed by people of all different backgrounds who live together in Crown Heights.

The event was MC'ed by Rabbi Shea Hecht and Richard Green. State Senator Eric Adams, State Assemblyman Karim Camara, and Assemblyman Alec Brook-Krasney all spoke. Dozens of prizes were raffled away, and many people commented on how fun and how positive the day was.

This event would not have happened without the energy, commitment and vision of Project C.A.R.E. member and staff member at Assemblyman Karim Camara's office, Mrs. Arna Lipkind.
