Celebration of Unity planned at Pike Place

Posted

Humans United for Equality, a local non-profit group, invites the community to its Third Annual Celebration of Unity 4-8 p.m. Saturday at Pike Place.

Organizers said this family-friendly event will be a great opportunity for community members to learn more about one another and to celebrate the diversity found in the county. 

There will be children’s activities, including face painting, pinatas, multicultural games, crafts and a bounce house. The C.A.N.D.L.E.S. Holocaust Musuem will have a booth with memorabilia and books from holocast survivor Eva Kor. 

To raise funds for future community events, HUE will sell raffle tickets with the chance to win a pair of Apple AirPods. 

All games, crafts, entertainment and activities will be free of charge. Complimentary grilled hot dogs will be provided by Hoosier Heartland State Bank, as well as free popcorn courtesy of Town and Country Homecenter. 

There also will be performances by the mariachi band Zelaya and local musician Maria Monsalve. Food also will be available for purchase from 1832 Brew, Norvell’s soul food, Bravo Fernandez Tacos, Wildfire 348 Pizza and Dippin’ Dots.

Anyone who would like to donate or volunteer, should email Sarah Reed at humansunitedforequality@gmail.com. 

This event has been made possible by HUE members, community volunteers, as well as Wabash College and the Journal Review for their monetary donations. 

HUE’s mission is to more fully develop an awareness and understanding of the ways that diversity and equality make the community stronger and lives richer. Follow them on Facebook to find out more information.
