"They got WellCare here, they got Amerigroup here, and they're bringing community groups, social service groups, and people know it every year, so they're able to come and these are the type of individuals who need these types of services in the community," Columbus City Councilman Jerry 'Pops' Barnes said.
The event is sponsored by numerous contributors in the Columbus community. Some of the entertainment included music and clowns.
"I'm giving back, I grew up in this area (butted) I'm going to give away free hair do's for the girls, free hair styles, help the parents out," Gracey Gunter said.
