Dear friends, let’s get together and celebrate the dream of an education. The Isac Amaya Foundation is having their annual scholarship fundraiser this Saturday August 20th at 6pm at St. Vincent De Paul 420 W. Watkins Rd. Phoenix, AZ 85003.
This event is organized by the group of young activists who put together the golf tournament where I shared my story over a month ago. They host a yearly scholarship fundraising effort to honor the memory of their friend, Isac Amaya, a DREAMer who was chasing his education and was taken away too soon. His dream of an education lives on his friends, who raise money to fund students who are as dedicated as Isac. The proceeds from the golf tournament and this dinner will go to a couple of scholarships for deserving students. A past recipient of the Isac Amaaya Memorial Scholarship is the “Harvard, Si Se Puede,” Silivia Rodriguez, who was able to raise enough money to go to harvard as a DREAMer. Last year, the group was able to raise around $15,000 for scholarships and this year they want to break that record.
Tickets for the dinner are $15 and they can be bought at the door. A silent auction will be held and there will also be room for additional donations to be made by all of those attending. I will also be sharing my story. I hope you can join us on the 20th to have dinner and celebrate DREAMs.
