Senator Vogel's 2015 Kids Extravaganza

Senator Vogel's 2015 Kids Extravaganza was held at Community College of Beaver County in Monaca on Saturday, June 27 from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Local POA member optometrists supported the event with tables including two very busy face painters that were a huge hit at the event.

Kids Welcome Here®, InfantSEE® and There is More to 3D were the table themes.

The POA members' mission was to explain with demonstration the need to have children's eyes examined at a very young age.

This was the sixth consecutive year for the event and the sixth consecutive year for local POA member optometrists to take part in it. An estimated 1500+ were in attendance.
