“This is the our second arts carnival which we organized in the Santa Clarita Valley,” said Varnica Singh, CRY America’s Los Angeles action center lead. “We had a painting competition in different age groups, and we gave kids different topics to express their creativity.”

Special thanks to the local cake baker Pavani Pasumurthy for donating delicious cupcakes to be sold at the event to raise additional funds.

Preparation for the event took one month, and in collaboration with Gunjan from Pump it Up which gave participants a discount on the open jump play time, said Singh.

“We really thank our venue sponsors Pump it Up of Santa Clarita for being so kind and accommodating all our requests,” she added.
