Today, supporters of the Children's Assessment Center are sponsoring a Car Show at a familiar place for such events, Fricano's Pizza, 5808 Alpine Ave here in Comstock Park. Fricano's is well known for it's Tuesday evenings car shows but today's show is specifically in financial support and awareness of counseling services for kids who may have been sexually abused. It is estimated that child abuse in one form or another victimized over 6,000 kids in Kent County alone. Most incidents go unreported and the Children's Center assesses about 1,000 kids a year. Abuse can lead to deep scars, especially if the victim does not receive counseling near the time the abuse took place. For more information, contact the Children's Assessment Center 616-336-5160.
Fricano's Pizza, recognized state wide for it's fine pizza, is celebrating it's 10th year at the Alpine Ave. location.
