Back To School Celebration

Family Restoration Services was founded with the belief that each child needs to be provided with the tools and opportunity to be successful. It is with this mindset, coupled by a deep and earnest commitment to our local community, we decided to host our second annual celebrity fundraiser to support our back to school supply drive. Ali and Stephanie Afonja, owners of Family Restoration Services, “Home of Children Fitness Academy,” LLC, would like to thank everyone who came out to support both of our events. Without the hard work put forth from our celebrity waiters and the generous donations given by our guest, we would not have been able to, not only meet but surpass our targeted goal. We would also like to thank all of our talented musical acts and the entire staff at Terras Restaurant & Bar, who were gracious enough to allow us to host this event at their lovely venue. The proceeds from the fundraiser went toward our agencies annual back to school drive held this year, at Phoebus Community Center. We were blessed to be able to provide 250 youth with much needed school supplies. There were also many opportunities for youth to win free sneakers, book bags, haircuts and salon appointments. Additionally, our guests were also treated to face painting, a petting zoo, fun fitness activities, vision screenings provided by the Phoebus Chapter of the Lions Club, health screenings, and sexual abuse victim information provided by the Center for Sexual Abuse Survivors. Please, feel free to view the pictures captured at these events, and while you are here make sure you check out the rest of our site to see all of the wonderful opportunities that Family Restoration Services provides to youth and families.
