5th Annual Oswego SAFE Fair

Bridge Street

Oswego County will host their fifth annual SAFE Fair to raise awareness about substance abuse. Teresa Woolson,

President of the Victor Orlando Woolson Foundation (VOW), started the fair after finding herself dealing with the loss of her son Victor Woolson, who passed away after drug use that went wrong. Teresa, along with her daughter Sarah Gauger continue to share Victor’s story to educate other teens and families on the dangers of synthetic drugs. 

The fair aims to make families more aware and educate everyone on using and abusing substances, addiction, treatment, services, options, healthy alternatives and much more. This family fun fair is free and includes free games, and prizes such as two Amazon Fire HD 10” Tablets. Activities, make and take home crafts, simulations, guests speaking about substance abuse and refreshments are all part of the day.

“We have 32 organizations coming to help raise awareness and education about addiction, treatment, services, healthy options, and there’s all kinds of fun things for families to do there.” Teresa says.

The Oswego County SAFE Fair kicks off on Sunday, April 29 at the Lake Ontario Event and Conference Center at 26 East First Street in Oswego. The event runs from 11a.m. to 3p.m. and is free for families to attend.
