BENEFITING: RUNNING REBELS COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2016
The purpose of this banquet is to appreciate and recognize the accomplishments of youth who have been involved in Running Rebels programming and to raise funds for scholarship to be awarded to students attending college.
For over 35 years Running Rebels Community Organization has been dedicated to providing positive choices for youth facing the daily pressures of delinquency, drug abuse, truancy and teen pregnancy. We serve as a positive alternative and outlet for central city youth combined with support and demonstrating that someone does care about their needs.
RRCO has grown in both programs and staff over the years. We continue targeting the city's most at-risk youth. Our achievements come through programs targeting specific needs that other agencies do not have as well as having committed staff. RRCO is proud to have helped mold thousands of young men and women into responsible members of society.
What does your donation go to? Your donation is directly applied to our youth who are attending college. We monitor their grades, credits and achievement's throughout college. Last year we were able to provide over $15,000 dollars in scholarship funding to youth attending colleges across the U.S. With your help, we will be able to expand our support and also help more youth attend college to obtain the degree's necessary in today's workforce. We encourage you to attend our annual banquet if possible to help recognize all the staff and other youth who make this program possible. As the funding progresses you will see video's posted of the youth already enrolled in college who need continued assistance to complete their degrees. As well as, new college attendee's who will announce which college they will attend.
This is a unique fundraiser, as you are able to see your donation hard at work!
