For Tosin, Onome, John and over 600 other children, the 20th of December 2014 will remain evergreen in their hearts as they were hosted to a memorable Christmas party in preparation for the launch of Orphan and Vulnerable Children (OVC) intervention programme for a secure future. The serene environment of the 7 Stars Event Center, venue of 2014’s Time out with our Adorables was caught up in frenzy at the end of the year celebration recently as the Orphaned and vulnerable Children, as well as other children and parents marked the year end in style.

For the over 600 children present at the party, the fun seemed endless- from dancing competitions to playing with the clowns and different cartoon characters

Not left out were the Children from the Love Home Orphanage, as this was an opportunity to share love and fun with other kids, in their numbers they came in their numbers and were certainly not left out in the fun..

Asides the food, candies and games the children also took out time to participate in a dance competition and also a simulated fashion parade of which the Mr. Adorable and Miss Adorable were selected and showered with gifts courtesy of the sponsors. Parents and guardians were also not left out as they engaged themselves in a dance competition to the admiration and cheers from the children.

The event which was organized by Efizzy events held at the premises of 7 Stars Event Center, Ogba, Ikeja, the surroundings were transformed into a mini playground for children with lots of toys and costumes. The children were also treated to different kinds of candies and drinks and shared in the cutting of the Christmas cakes. For Mrs. Adamolekun, a parent who accompanied two of her children, she expressed satisfaction at the turn out of the event, owing her gratitude to Access Bank who supported in making the event a success. She

emphasized that the party was not just about the festive period but a way of uniting with one another as the pressures of life and the hectic year. The kids were also given lots of gifts from Santa Claus and were treated to photo sessions.
