Thanks to all who attended our Halloween themed networking mixer event last night at Siena golf course. You all made it fun and a successful evening! It is only because of generous people like you all, we together are making a difference in lives of many kids in our community who need us the most! It was nice to see new faces in the room and they were anxious to know about our programs and the work we have been doing for last decade.
In addition to many desired raffle and auction items, we also had fun doing trivia as a part of trick & treat for Halloween theme. All the guests in the room were engaged trying to solve the riddle. Each of the winner received a prize of their choice.
We also thank our Raffle and Auction items donors for their donation in-kind to help us raise funds! With everybody's generous support we raised funds to sponsor many students.
THANK YOU AGAIN!
Impact of receiving tutoring in middle school on a student's high school performance:
We completed our 9th year of Community Education Program providing in-school tutoring programs in core subjects for K-12. In the last 9 years over 230,000 tutoring hours have been provided and thousands of students have been benefited. We are looking forward to welcoming our scholars in the 10th year of our Community Education Program.
