Event promotes awareness
about child abuse, prevention

AUBURN — Advocates for Children of Lewiston will promote National Child Abuse/Neglect Prevention Month with Spider-Man from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at the Norway Savings Bank Arena.

Superhero Saturday will help raise awareness, celebrate the community’s efforts toward child abuse prevention and be a fundraiser for the agency.

Marvel’s Spider-Man will speak about child safety and recruit new “Junior Super Heroes.” Real life heroes such as police officers, firefighters and teachers will participate in activities with the children.

Children can dress as their favorite superhero, meet Spider-Man, ice skate and participate in a scavenger hunt for a chance to win prizes.

Admission for those over the age of 1 is $8 at the door. All proceeds benefit the prevention and education programs of Advocates For Children.
