Sources of Strength Celebration 2011
Over 350 people attended this event. The event went extremely well due to a committed and energized group of volunteers from 1n10. Participants began strolling through the space in at 5:45pm. Event started at 6:00pm with introductions from Stacey Jay Cavaliere (1n10 Prevention Coordinator) and Michelle Ponce (Public Allies), with a welcome address given by District 15 State Representative Katie Hobbs. This was followed by announcements of all the local non-profit and youth-serving agencies in attendance. The hosts then welcomed the Fusion Dance Team to the stage. Following this performance, local bands Born Loser and the Hangers On and Super Stereo took to the stage to provide some energetic and exciting music. DJ Musa Mind provided her amazing talent intermittently throughout the evening as well while folks perused the art exhibition, featuring artwork created by 1n10 youth. Overall the event was a huge success. Participants commented on the positive and energetic atmosphere and welcomed the sense of community and support throughout the evening.
