14th Annual Mr. Whitman
Organized by: Mr. Whitman
EVENT DATE Oct 31, 2015
This year's 14th annual Mr.Whitman pageant is aiming to make a positive impact in the Walla Walla community. The charity chosen this year is AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) at the Walla Walla Public Schools, which is an organization dedicated towards closing the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
Typically, AVID students will be the first in their families to attend college, and many are from low-income or minority families. AVID is an avenue for these students to acquire skills in communication, critical thinking, note-taking, peer-tutoring, organization, time-management and more.
Every donation makes a difference. All funds raised will go to AVID at the Walla Walla Public Schools, which will fund AVID tutor training and college visits. Without AVID's help, many students would be unable to attend college, which is often a gateway out of poverty and a pathway towards success.
The Mr. Whitman pageant itself if a fun event hosted by Kappa Kappa Gamma at Whitman College. Eight of Whitman's finest men compete to raise the most money over the course of a few months. The final event pageant night, on October 30th, 2015, is a night of entertainment and celebration of their hard work fundraising.
Please help us help our community. Can we count on you to help children attain their dreams?
