Empower To Be Big Recap and June Workshop
Empower To Be Big Recap
First, we want to thank everyone who attended Empower To be Big this year. It was an intimate evening where we had fun with a photo booth, enjoyed fantastic BBQ catered by Bill Wallace, and enjoyed music by DJ4him, Luke Cruise. We heard from Kendall, our volunteer MC, and current mentor, about all the benefits of our program. We also got to view a video produced by a parent, Kelly Daviscourt, where we got to see and hear current mentors and students sharing our stories. View our photo album here
By the end of the night, everyone went home with all the auction items, and we raised $4372 to help keep our program growing this coming school year.
For our last workshop of the year, our mentors and students met up at Lincoln Park for a potluck picnic. It’s really fun when everyone gets to spend time together, just talking, laughing, and being outside in the sun. We spent time sharing our summer plans, sharing our favorite memories, and playing board games.
It was a fun year, and we are all excited to keep meeting up this summer.
