The Leadership Lawrence class of 2014 invites you to participate in our 2nd annual Party with a Purpose on December 7 at 12:00! This event is a fantastic way to not only party, eat, and have fun, but also do something amazing for your community.
Sponsored by Independence, Inc. and Integrity Midwest Insurance, LLC. Your $35 entry fee gets you beer and wine and food. But that comes after you and your teammates go shopping for a family you've adopted for the holidays.
If you'd like to help a family for the holidays, but find the pricetag of adopting an entire family daunting, this is a way to really contribute to hope for a family in not only a happy Christmas but a productive and hopeful 2015.
Pay your entry fees in advance and the organizers will assign each team of 10 people a family. Your team of 10 will meet at Fatso's and then depart to shop. After shopping, bring the gifts back to Fatso's to wrap. Enjoy food, drink, and fellowship while you see the results of your efforts roll in!
Each person we adopt gets a shirt, pants, and a gift, and they also will receive Strengths-Based case management at Penn House over the next year in order to find a path to self sufficiency. By 2015 most of these families will not need assistance at the holidays, thanks to the "dream team" at Ballard Community Services.
If you'd like to be on a team, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will match you with a group!
If you would like to be a team captain, all you need to do is rally nine of your friends to join you in this Party with a Purpose! Please let Megan know if you are interested! 842-0729
