Northeast Ohio Adoption Services (NOAS), in conjunction with the Mahoning County Children Services Board, will be celebrating National Adoption Day in a “cool” way! In partnership with Youngstown Phantoms Ice Hockey, NOAS will host a National Adoption Day Event on Saturday, November 10, 2012.
The event features an Adoption Celebration for all those who have adopted, waiting children and approved foster and adoptive families within the Mahoning Valley. The Adoption celebration will feature a Free Open Skate from 4:30 – 5:30 pm at The Covelli Centre, 229 E Front St, Youngstown OH 44503. There will be food, games, and fun. Pre-registration is required.
The Youngstown Phantoms Hockey game honoring National Adoption Day starts at 7:15 p.m. immediately following the Open Skate. A significant emphasis for the evening will be on the thousands of Ohio children who are waiting for permanent homes. Adoptive families and waiting children will be incorporated in the game in a variety of ways.
During the second intermission, NOAS will present a “flash mob” to the song “Without You” by David Guetta and Usher. The flash mob will present a choreographed dance with signage about waiting kids and who can adopt. What a powerful way for teens to advocate for other teens!
The flash mob will also perform on Saturday, November 17 at 11:45 am at the Eastwood Mall main concourse in Niles just prior to Santa’s arrival.
