Festival of Friendship
Awareness and Fundraising For People With Disabilities
Blanton Newman, a senior at J.L. Mann High School in Greenville, has organized a festival to raise awareness about persons with disabilities and to bring all community members together, regardless of their abilities. It takes place Sunday, April 7, 3-6 p.m. at J.L. Mann High School track (located behind the school), 160 Fairforest Way.
The “Festival of Friendship” is open to the public. The event also serves as a fundraiser for J.L. Mann’s S.P.E.C.I.A.L.S. program – Students Pursue Exceptional Challenges In All Life Skills. Cash-only tickets may be purchased onsite for festival games, food, and drink.
Newman organized the festival as part of his service project for the Emerging Public Leaders (EPL) program at Furman University’s Riley Institute.
