  • (1888PressRelease) April 08, 2017 - The Spring Block Party will be the third in a series of successful seasonal parties which began in July 2016, celebrating a year of community service and partnerships. In total, the Block parties have brought some 6,000 guests together to enjoy the live band, activities and food from downtown restaurants and vendors. These guests participate in games such as raffles for gift certificates donated by downtown merchants and a $500 VISA gift card donated by the Church of Scientology. Also represented at these celebrations were some of the non-profits that have partnered with the centers since their opening in July 2015.

    The Fall Grand Prize raffle winner was a woman who attended with her children and foster children with the hope of lifting their spirits. When winning the raffle she said, "Oh my goodness! You don't understand what this means to these kids. They've gone through so much, and I've been trying to figure out how to get what they need for school! Thank you, this will make such a difference for them!"

    In addition to the fun, this Block Party attendees will also be able to find out about the humanitarian initiatives supported by Scientologists the world over. These include: drug prevention, immorality, reinforcing human rights and championing mental health rights.

    Since their opening in July 2015, these centers have welcomed over 100,000 visitors and have partnered with 1,200 like-minded individuals and organizations that work to improve Tampa Bay.

    "Everything the Church of Scientology does in downtown is beautiful," said Steve, a local resident. "I love the restoration you have done on your buildings and the block parties you put on! I can't wait until you have the next one - it was so much fun!"
