BENEFITING: LEAP FROG PROGRAM
EVENT DATE: Jul 01, 2016
Leap Frog is gearing up for its fourth annual Firecracker Bash! It will be on July 1st at the Lyric in Oxford, MS. Help Cathy and Jason get crowned Mr. and Mrs. America the night of the event! The Leap Frog Program is a non-profit after-school tutoring and mentoring program for at-risk 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders in the Oxford City and Lafayette County schools. The program serves 140 students, with no charge to their families. Students who attend Leap Frog benefit from an hour of one-on-one tutoring and enrichment activities one hour twice a week. So far this year we have seen an average of 1.5 years of growth in reading in our students! Leap Frog is able to keep this program running without charging the families through fundraisers like this.
