50 distinguished Turkish-American families attended this very important event to raise awareness and support for the April 23 Children’s Day Festival to be organized on April 17, 2011 in Long Beach. We simply thank to all the guests who attended, and valuable members or our community who contributed in many ways to this cause. Mr. Hakan Tekin made a speech emphasizing the importance of support for community events by associations such as ATASC.
