Mercer Island Fulfilling a Dream Event
Nicolás Fund for Education is hosting our annual dessert fundraiser, Fulfilling a Dream 2018, on May 12th. Our Fulfilling a Dream event on Mercer Island on May 12th has a Silent Auction from 6-7:00 pm, and our program will be from 7:30-8:30 pm.
South Sound Fulfilling a Dream Event
We are also holding a separate South Sound Fulfilling a Dream event on May 11th in Gig Harbor. The South Sound event on May 11th begins at 7 pm and will end about 8:30 pm. The event will be held at Spinnaker Ridge Clubhouse in Gig Harbor.
All Funds Raised Go to the Kids
Both events will feature wonderful home-made desserts made by our volunteer bakers. There is no fee to attend these fundraisers. We keep things simple and depend on volunteer labor and bakers so that all the funds raised go to the kids. We hope that you will feel free to invite a friend. Please register for the event.
These two fundraisers raise money for academic scholarships for 2019.
Simply put, what we raise that night determines how many students we can serve next year.
God is on the Move in this Part of Guatemala
We have a financial goal of nearly $300,000 to raise. Our organization has expanded over the past seven years from serving 13 students in two villages to now serving 85 kids in seven different villages in the Ixil region of Guatemala! We are also supporting 16 students in college. Can you remember when we first entered these villages more than a decade ago and played with these children when they were babies and toddlers? Did you ever in your wildest dreams imagine these children might be able to attend college? It is important to pause now and realize just what God has already done. Praise to Him, and may He be glorified in the lives of these promising young men and women. God is on the move in this part of Guatemala, bringing healing and social justice through education to help the Ixil people. Don’t you want to come alongside God in His rescue mission in the world? This high quality, full day, Christian education will help the entire region and lift the next generation up out of poverty.
The Sole Purpose of the Fundraiser is to Generate Funds for Academic Scholarships.
Many of you know that we hope to eventually build a school close to Cotzal to serve Ixil children. The dessert fundraiser will not be raising funds to buy land or build the school.
You Don’t Want to Miss This!
Both events are a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with old friends and teammates, and to find out more about what Nicolás Fund for Education has been doing over the past year and what our plans are for the future!
