Passion for the Village – You are invited
Passion for the Village, May 10, 2012, 6pm at Children’s Village, 3801 Kern Road, Yakima. Dinner, entertainment and auction! This annual event is put on by The Memorial Foundation’s YouthWorks Council to raise funds and community awareness for Children’s Village. This year the YouthWorks Council is joining forces with Friends of the Village, a group of adults in the community who are also passionate about Children’s Village.
The evening features dinner, entertainment and an auction. With entertainment provided by local high school students from Naches Valley and Davis high schools, guests will also see a Kids On the Block puppet presentation, meet a family that receives services at Children’s Village and tour the newly expanded facility. A great selection of items has been donated for the silent auction, including several works of art by local youth artists, three hours of yard work provided by the youth council, and many other great items.
The YouthWorks Council is a philanthropic leadership opportunity for area youth. Council members represent various high schools from our community and various youth programs in our organization volunteering with Memorial Hospital and its family of services – giving back to the community in a special way.
Friends of the Village is a volunteer group of Children’s Village supporters who act as goodwill ambassadors. The Friends’ vision is to provide a bridge extending between Children’s Village, its agencies and the communities in which they serve. They offer support by sharing knowledge and looking for ways to enhance the collaborative relationships.
All funds raised through Passion for the Village support Children’s Village.
