A Fundraiser to Help Youth with Disabilities Build Leadership Skills
Published on Thursday, November 17, 2011 - 9:14am
Come to an event on Friday, November 18, 7 to 9 p.m., at the Teatro Goldoni restaurant.
One in six youth in D.C. will be diagnosed with a disability. A large majority of these youth face significant challenges transitioning from high school to adult life or lack the training and resources to help them take control of their futures. Help us build leadership skills in D.C. youth with disabilities by supporting our cause! Proceeds of the fundraiser will go to SchoolTalk, a local nonprofit organization, to support D.C. Partners in Transition in building leadership in D.C. youth with disabilities and their partnership with the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library's Adaptive Services group for youth who are blind or visually impaired. Proceeds will support buying and implementing a transition curriculum for the youth group and for use citywide, provide books and supplies for the youth resource center at MLK Library, and provide resources for DC youth leadership-building events such as the Transition Forum.
A donation of $25 will give you access to our exclusive event at Teatro Goldoni restaurant on November 18. This donation will give you access to an open wine bar from 7 to 8 p.m., light hors d'oeuvres, and music provided by Marcus Johnson and DJ Adrian Loving! $6 Cocktail specials from 8-9 p.m. We encourage you to donate more by selecting the "Generous Donor Admission" ticket and entering the amount you choose.
