Holiday Happening Giveaway
On Wednesday December 20th, the annual holiday giveaway raffle happened at the Flagler County Youth Center sponsored by the FCYC Student Advisory Club. Upon entry to the Youth Center, students were given a raffle ticket. Youth Center management would then call out tickets one at a time to reveal a winner. With over 40 varying winnable prizes of candy and gift cards, almost everyone would be deemed a winner on the day. We would like to thank everyone who attended on the day of the event and are thankful to spread some cheer for this holiday season!
On Wednesday December 6th, there was a Madden Tournament held at the Flagler County Youth Center sponsored by the FCYC Student Advisory Club. Many participated but ultimately the final would come down to Da’Wayne Hall and Darwin Harris. The game was so close that it would go into an overtime situation where Hall would prevail as the winner. Da’Wayne Hall was awarded a $20 WAWA gift card and the runner up Darwin Harris would receive a $10 WAWA gift card. Thank you to all who participated! The Flagler Count Youth Center will continue to create events that interest all of our students!
