Family Support Services: October FeSSt
Family Support Services invites you to participate in a great new event – October FeSSt – on October 12th, 11am-5pm at Starlight Ranch, 1415 Sunrise. Starlight Ranch has graciously donated their fantastic event center so that we can present a family-friendly fall festival. We are engaging community partners from both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors to make this event a success.
The event will feature entertainment on two stages, a sausage cook-off competition, games and activities, and lots of opportunities to provide families with information about your organization or business. Admission will be free. There will be a small charge for tickets to participate in the games or activities. FSS will sell these tickets and utilize proceeds to cover costs of the festival.
Starlight Ranch will have attractions and concessions open during the event.
Booth Vendors provide their own canopies, tables, and chairs. Electricity is not available to the booths. Separate information is available for any business or organization that wants to provide stage entertainment and/or a cook team.
Nonprofits are welcome at no charge as long as they provide a game or activity. There is a nominal fee for for-profit businesses to participate, with a discount for those who provide a game or activity. Door prizes are most welcome from all participants.
Any net proceeds from this event will contribute to Family Support Services’ ability to provide prevention programs, counseling, advocacy, veteran resources, emergency housing, family strengthening, human trafficking resources, and crisis services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. FSS has the only “safe house” in Amarillo-Canyon and a 24-hour Crisis Hotline. More than 25,000 people are served each year by FSS. While this event is not planned as a major fundraiser, we do hope it will grow in years to come to help support our mission.
Please consider joining us this year. For more information, please call or email.
