I am so proud and honored to be announcing our 2 Year Anniversary Celebration will be held on Thursday January 31, 2013 at the Cuban Revolution Restaurant & Bar on 60 Valley Street.
We will have many returning charities on this evening for you to meet if you missed there events during this year. Each Charity will have a table and a representative from that organization will be there to answer any questions. You may also make an individual donation to any charity during this event.
We will also have many of our great donors there to show their support as well. Without the great donations from such people as Alan Frances, Crystal Sparkman and RISD Museum of Art we would NOT be able to do this.
We started two years ago with a very simple mission: to bring the community together as one to make a difference. To get the community engaged in helping the many wonderful charities that are doing great work in our neighborhoods. To educate the community on issues and ways to deal with those issues and finally to do all of this without breaking the communities wallet.
In the two years we have been doing events we have raised $17, 000 for local charities. This is pretty amazing since we only ask for a $5 donation at each event. We ask for this amount because its not about making a million dollars for a charity, its about bringing awareness to problems and getting everyone involved. We also realize that in these economic times, not everyone can give a lot, but everyone can give $5.
I look forward to seeing you all there and being given the opportunity to say THANK YOU.
