FAMILY FUN DAY!
JUNE 9, 2018
McKenna Elementary School, 210 Spruce Street
Massapequa Park, NY 11762
On Saturday June 9, 2018, Long Island Tourette Association hosted our annual Family Fun Day, which took place at the McKenna Elementary School, 210 Spruce Street, Massapequa Park, NY 11762.
Family Fun Day is an event where families and children will come out, have fun and enjoy the day, while Long Island Tourette Association has an opportunity to raise awareness, acceptance, and sensitivity for the individuals we serve. The funds generated from this event will be used to support vital chapter activities, such as support group meetings, advocacy and social events, throughout the year.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the wit&whim kick-off event. It was a great event. Heartfelt thanks to the owners of wit&whim, Krissy and Jacqueline, who generously donated 10% of all proceeds for the entire month of June to LI TA.
For those of you who could not make it to the store during the event, wit&whim has great Father's Day, Graduation and teacher gifts. As well as an overall great inventory of unique gift items. So, check out wit&whim at 6 Carlton Avenue, Port Washington, NY
