The Los Angeles Chapter of Child Rights and You (CRY) held its 2nd Arts Carnival fundraiser on Sunday at Pump it Up in Valencia.

“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.”

The carnival featured a Henna booth, silent auction and the art competition itself where children drew and painted on sheets of paper and small canvases provided by CRY.

Auction items on display included a STEAM Education box from Toka Box, SL Loft jewelry, handmade paintings, handmade greeting cards by JEM Cookies, traditional art pieces, handmade crochet scarf, The Looks threading Salon vouchers, Origami Owl jewelry by Cherise Imbert, Glow House Gaming party package to name a few. 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.

Trophies and certificates were given to the winners of the art competition, divided in different age groups:
Ages 3-6: 1st- Aditi 2nd- Srividya 3rd- Anika
Ages: 7- 10: 1st- Esha 2nd- Avani 3rd- Yashvee
Ages: 11-14: 1st- Mahati 2nd- Abhi 3rd- Sanjay

The proceeds will go to grassroots organization across the United States and to children in Asian countries, as well, Singh said.

I want to thank Boston Scientific for being our main sponsor, Pump it Up for being our venue sponsor, Kumon Saugus North and Kumon of Copper hill for sponsorships.
