BENEFITING: LAKE ERIE INK- A WRITING SPACE FOR YOUTH
EVENT DATE: Mar 12, 2016
I am honored to be on the Board of Directors for an impactful youth-serving organization, Lake Erie Ink. Lake Erie Ink: a writing space for youth is a non-profit organization that provides creative expression opportunities and academic support to youth in the greater Cleveland community. Lake Erie Ink serves youth from a broad socio-economic, cultural and academic range, using creative writing to increase literacy and social engagement. Lake Erie Ink offers:
• a safe and engaging space for youth to be after school, four days a week
• weekly and monthly creative expression workshops for writers of all ages
• creative writing and literacy support through in-school and out-of-school time programs
Inspired by the fast paced, Scrabble like word game, Bananagrams, teams of up to 5 will compete on a 30 X 30 foot board in front of an audience with plays and words announced by a guest MC. This event requires creative thinking and encourages team spirit and collaboration!
I am a first-year Board Member and I need your help reaching my goal of $500! No amount is too small and every donation is equally appreciated. Team Cicely Bananarama wants to WIN!
