Fair News: 2017 Western Fairs Assocation Wins!

We had the pleasure of attending the Western Fairs Association convention this year, where fairs from all over California and beyond get together to network, learn, and celebrate the work various fairs have done in 2016.

This year we had the honor of taking home 11 Achievement Awards for the 2016 LA County Fair, covering everything from marketing to community. Thank you to WFA for the recognition!

We had a blast networking with other Fair folk, speaking and meeting with vendors and entertainers, and seeing all the creativity and hard work our friends have done. What a blast!

Dare to Care: Pink Patch Project Recognition

During the 2016 LA County Fair we had the privilege of partnering with the Irwindale Police Department for a very special project.

The Pink Patch Project is a fundraiser dedicated to breast cancer awareness and directly benefits the City of Hope. Although Breast Cancer Awareness Month is officially in October, the Irwindale PD got a head start on the campaign at the LA County Fair.

The pink patches stimulated conversation with the community about the importance of early cancer detection and the on-going fight against the disease.

Officers spent their time at the Fair educating guests and employees alike on breast cancer awareness, as well as selling pink patches, t-shirts and other items to support the City of Hope in their breast cancer research and treatments.

Last week we were invited to attend the Irwindale City Council meeting where we were presented with a plaque recognizing us for our support of the Pink Patch Project.

Thank you to the LA County Police Chiefs’ Association for letting us be a part of such a great project!
