EAWR Junior AnnaLeigh White had the winning T-shirt drawing for the event, Moore said, and he thanked the high school's participation in making it a success.

"The school had contests for the T-shirt design and White won the contest," he said. "I also thank Jeremy Sheppard of Street Eatz for his help organizing the event. We also had a bounce house and a lot of activities for children. Overall, it was a great event."
