The Colfax World Fair was recently held to help Colfax Charter Elementary School, located just three miles north of Studio City, raise funding for various k-5 programs, including the arts, instructional music, farming and gardening, hands-on science programs, and aids to assist students within the classrooms.
The fair took place last Saturday, May 18, at the school located in Valley Village at 11724 Addison Street, from 12:00 noon until 7:00 pm. This year’s fair marked the 10th anniversary for the fundraising event, which has been recognized as the school’s most important event of the year.
Community events and fundraisers are usually advertised to the public through flyer printing. Poster printing may also be used to announce the activity and raise awareness with in the community. Fundraisers such as fairs and carnivals also typically use banner printing at the activity or to direct visitors to a specific area.
The 10th Annual Colfax World Fair included such draws as game booths, food vendors, entertainment, and a silent auction. The fair even featured Toddler Town, an area specifically designed for young children and babies, and extended to Morella Avenue, where the ever-popular Morella Water Park entices children of all ages.
Colfax Charter Elementary School is a highly recognized public school located in the Sab Fernando Valley. Proceeds from the fundraising event each year go to support various educational programs and needs at the school. Last year’s event helped raise over $100,000 and attracted more than 8,000 visitors.
