Kites for KidsVoice
I'd love it if you and/or your spouse/significant other might come to the KidsVoice gala, Kitetails and Cocktails, on Thursday, April 28th at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium. Your fellow POP, Randy Tracht, is on the host committee, along with his wife Annie. It promises to be a fun night out with plenty of good food and libations, live music from Tres Lads, and some sweet auction items from sports memorabilia to meals and whiskey tastings to a week's stay in Barbados or at Siesta Key. There's even the chance to have your kid help coach the Steelers players charity basketball team this Spring. Kitetails and Cocktails tix are $100.
The second part of our April events (in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month) is Kites For Kids, a community event at the zoo on Saturday, April 30th from 11am-3pm. There will be kite themed goings on, and the awarding of a $5,000 educational scholarship to the winner of the American Eagle sponsored kite decorating and design contest for children ages 5-21. Entries can be dropped off at the Southside American Eagle store. Other than the usual zoo admission (and many of you have memberships), there's no cost to participate in Kites For Kids. So please bring your families out to show that you support and believe in the 4,000 abused and neglected children KidsVoice represents in Allegheny County each year. Many of our clients will be there anonymously to experience that. Thanks.
There's an electronic version of the Kitetails and Cocktails invite below for your consideration -- and to pass along to others if you're so inclined. If you're company is interested in possibly being a sponsor for the events, or if you'd like more info about the scholarship contest or events, visit www.kidsvoice.org.
