Six years ago three families from Russia watched from the airport lobby with tears in their eyes as their young sons, then 9 (Daniil) and 11 (Gleb and Max) years old, left their home country for a chance at a better life. Their hearts were torn, but they knew the gift of America was too much to pass on, even if it meant sending away their most precious gift. No doubt, times were hard. The boys landed in America not knowing a word of English or another sould, but better times were ahead. Fast forward to today and there are now 4 boys. Each of whom is a successful and much admired member of the community with an average 3.9 GPA. They are stars on the field, the court, in the classroom, and on the day this Fundraiser begins our first graduate is off to Bucknell with a fullride scholarship. All of our efforts have been supported by every day donors giving what they can. We do not recieve any money from the government or large foundations, we are 100% donation based.
