Last year, on July 11th 2015, over 4,000 people came together to inaugurate the opening of these centers which house international programs providing solutions to drug abuse, immorality, human rights abuses and criminality.

“Since their opening some 60,000 visitors have come through our doors and have learned about these programs. In terms of community outreach over 152,000 human rights booklets, 281,000 drug education booklets, and some 200,000 The Way to Happiness booklets (a non-religious, non political moral code based on common sense) have been distributed across the Tampa Bay area and we have partnered with over 500 groups and individuals,” stated Nicole Biancolini, the centers' representative.

The July 16th block party will include live music, food, prizes and family friendly activities such as arts and crafts, a scavenger hunt through the centers, and a raffle drawing. There will be a bouncy house, inflatable slide and face painting for kids. There is no charge to attend or participate in the festival activities.

“Working with the community has been an amazing experience. There are so many individuals and nonprofits in the local area working to improve the quality of life for all and we’d like to thank them for it,” said Mrs. Biancolini.
