Ebenezer Christian Academy Fundraiser
The Bridge Networking Group and Woman’s Life is holding A Night in the Cape fundraiser for Ebenezer Christian Academy (the Academy) on Thursday, April 7, 2011 from 5-7 p.m. at Wine and Roses Restaurant, 1404 Cape Coral Pkwy., Cape Coral, Florida. To help make the live auction and raffle portion of this event a success, we are requesting a gift card, tickets or product donation from your business.
The Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the goal of enriching the lives of children in grammar school and middle school. The Academy’s Mission is to encourage each child to have a positive attitude in life. Their Vision is for each child to be a leader and not a follower; to mentor those younger than oneself; to have a love for education; and to respect one’s parents, elders and those in authority.
The Academy’s programs consist of:
• Tutoring for School Aged Youth: Offering activities such as completing homework, sports, music lessons, mentoring, learning basic life skills, and English as a Second Language;
• Field Trips: Six annual field trips are offered to introduce disadvantaged children to innovative and creative activities in the Southwest Florida area, e.g. visiting the Imaginarium, libraries in different areas of Lee County and Sun Splash. Up to 50 children are estimated to participate, under the guidance of five field trip leaders, and
• English as a Second Language (ESOL): Classes are held every six months, two times a week, two hours per class for up to 20 students at a time. At each six month interval, those excelling in language skills move up to the next class level.
Partnering with us supports the belief that every child deserves quality after school learning opportunities in a safe, nurturing environment. Please send your donation to the Fund Raising Committee, Attn.: Irene Giniat, 841 SW 29th St., Cape Coral, FL 33914. If you are donating a larger item, please contact me at (239) 458-8268, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for pick up. Your gift is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. We also hope you will be able to join us on April 7th at Wine and Roses!
