Prizes, giveaways and ice cream highlight EPIC youth event this weekend

CLARKSTON, WA - The local coalition EPIC is throwing a party this weekend and everyone is invited.

It's an event designed to empower youth to make healthy life choices.
There'll be prizes, giveaways and lots of ice cream. The first 300 kids get in for free.

"Our goal is to safeguard our youth against having physical and emotion problems with substance abuse," said EPIC Community Coordinator, Kristi Sharpe. "We want to bring the community together to show them how they can be part of the solution and help us raise healthy kids."

Sharpe said Lewiston Parks and Rec leaders will be there with plenty of games for kids.

The event starts at 11:30 Saturday morning at the Asotin County Family Aquatic Center. Activities run until four o'clock that afternoon and Sharpe said everyone will leave with a prize.
