On June 2nd, SFM hosted our first ever Carnival and Wellness Fair from the pavement of our Bonney Lake clinic. It was a free event open to the community designed to help our neighbors learn about ways they can stay healthy, get connected to local healthcare providers and services, and have some good ole fun under the sun! We were lucky to have awesome weather and a team of hardworking volunteers to help set up and run our carnival.
Some of our doctors showed off their hidden talents, like Dr. Komarow who showed us her llama handling skills with her posing llamas, and Dr. Chawla and Dr. Aversa who demonstrated their artistry in the face painting station.
We had many wonderful vendors and sponsors who participated, like Jubilee Burgers who kept our tummies full and our smiles wide. The VANity Photo Bus was also at the carnival and we can honestly say we’ve never had that much fun in a vehicle!
The Gordon Family YMCA lent us some of their trusty volunteers to help run our carnival games like Ring Toss, Duck Hunt and Tic Tac Toe. Nothing beats some friendly competition on a warm summer day! We also hosted a bounce house, popcorn station, and a balloon artist, Dr Twistin, who made the best turtles and swords!
A special thanks to all our sponsors Gordon Family YMCA, American Cancer Society, Ideal Motion Chiropractic, Mother Nurture 3D/4D Ultrasound Studio, ATI Physical Therapy, Diagnostic Imaging, 9Round, Woodcreek Pediatrics, Cascade Eye & Skin, and Puyallup Fit4Mom who all made this event possible.
The Sound Family Medicine Carnival and Wellness Fair was a huge hit and we are so excited to spend more time in our community this summer. Next up? We’ll be sponsoring the Sumner Relay for Life event on July 20th. Please stop by to say hello and scoop up free goodies.
