BENEFITING: DOMINICAN ACADEMY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK
ORGANIZER: DOMINICAN ACADEMY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
My name is Teresa and I am only a freshman at Dominican Academy, but I can honestly say that I love and appreciate this school so much already. I constantly switched schools when I was younger because they didn't make enough money to keep the school running or I graduated from the school. D.A. is the sixth school I've attended in my entire academic career, but it is so much more than that. Dominican Academy provides a form of education that you don't see anywhere else and fosters girls to use their abilities to change the world for the better. Being a student at D.A. has empowered me as a female and provided so many opportunities for myself and other students. This fundraiser has been set up, so that every student at D.A. can continue to be provided with these amazing opportunities regardless of their financial status. Our goal is to raise enough money, so the tuition does not increase, there by prohibiting girls from receiving an amazing education because of their financial background and not their academic capability.
