Funraiser @ Blue Canyon 4 Missions

$3,050 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 33 people in 36 months
Swing into Action is sponsoring it's 2nd Annual Celebrity Bartender Contest at Blue Canyon Restaurant on Thursday, September 10th to continue the work we have been doing in the extremely poor community of Teotepeque El Salvador.  

In continuing with our goal to make education a priority, we are dedicating this year's proceeds to an Adult Literacy Program that we will be starting for the very first time.  During our mission trip to El Salvador on July 24th we will be meeting with community officials, teachers and principals to help eradicate illiteracy in this community.  Every adult will have the opportunity to obtain their high school diploma.

We are bringing a teacher from Twinsburg High School who will be spearheading the project and seeing it through to completion.  In addition, we are working with another group to remodel an existing youth center in order to hold the necessary classes for this program. Proceeds will go to pay for the remodel construction 2 teacher's annual salaries.  

Please consider donating what you can to this incredible project, and contribute to making a difference in their lives.  Thanks for all the incredible support over the years.  I will post pictures from our July trip to keep you up to date on the project. 

Most sincerely,

Joyce Colovas
Executive Director, Swing into Action
