Community Initiatives Program

second annual summer fun fundraiser

To be held July 23, 2006

2006 Summer Fun Fundraiser

"Helping Youth Through Educational Scholarships" has had a very successful first year.  We were able to fulfill our mission of raising funds in Canada and providing scholarships to financially challenged and community minded youth in developing countries.  In January 2006, 9 students in Tanzania and 4 students in Kenya were able to go to school thanks to all the support and generosity showed by contributors to HYTES.  And now we are looking to continue providing scholarships for the 2007 school year.  Our aim is to send our 13 students back for their second year as well as provide funds for additional students in Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and Guatemala.
Our biggest annual fundraiser is right around the corner and we'd love for you to join us!  You, your family and your friends are invited to the 2nd Annual HYTES Summer Fun Fundraiser on Sunday, July 23, 2006.  Admission is free and you are welcome to join us at anytime after 2:00 PM.  We just ask that you can bring a dish that will serve 3 or 4 people for the potluck.  Also, remember your pocketbook as there are many exciting items and services in our silent auction.

Admission is free. Please bring a few servings of appetizers, main courses or desserts for potluck.
