This is my first birthday fundraiser! It is my goal to raise at least $2,400 in scholarship funds for seven local high school seniors by my 24th birthday.

Here's The Story!

I need your help to provide scholarships to seven graduating seniors. I have decided to use my 24th birthday as a fundraiser to provide scholarship money for seven local high school seniors attending the Boys & Girls Clubs of the CSRA (BGC). I felt it was only right to give back to a group of kids who have taught me so much and given me something to look forward to each chance I get to work with them.
In 2009 I began volunteering at BGC and in 2011 I was hired upon graduation. I have learned a great deal through working with this organization. I love waking up knowing that the work I do everyday is helping to make a meaningful and positive impact in the lives of local youth. 
I've always wanted to do a birthday fundraiser and it is my honor to do my very first one in support of these seniors!

What We Need, Where It Goes, & What You Get

What we need:

  • $2,400 (at least)
    • Because I'm turning 24, get it!

I know that $2,400 doesn't seem like much once you split it seven ways. What I'm hoping to do is help seed a dream. Regardless of whether these graduates dream to start college in the next year, travel to a foreign country, or finance an artistic project; they need a place to start. They need a seed. I want this scholarship to serve as a seed for whatever their dreams may be. I think we can all agree that sometimes the hardest part of reaching a goal can just be getting started. Let's help them get started!

Where it goes:

  • The money will be split evenly between the seven seniors

What you get:

  • That warm fuzzy feeling from knowing that you've done something AWESOME!
  • Your name on the Patron List on the website www.oneaprilevening.org
  • A wrist band
  • An invite to the celebratory cocktail party: One April Evening
  • Automatic entry in the One April Evening raffle 


If You Can't Donate

I understand that everyone can not donate. Gas is exspensive and bills are always due. 

Spreading the word about this campaign is just as good as a donation in my book! Share this with everyone you know! Put it on Facebook, tweet it, email it, text it! It all helps!


Thank you!
