Civic Theatre Beneﬁt Funds the Future
A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who supported the June 5th Civic Theater Event, Young Frankenstein. Thanks to you, we raised $15,000, enabling P4P to continue partnering with 26 villages in Kenya, bringing health to malnourished infants, clean water, education and economic development. We know there are many worthy causes that you can choose to support, but you chose to help sustain P4P’s programs. Asante Sana!
Special thanks to the Civic Theatre Committee, led by Barbara Morkill. Hours of preparation and planning made this event spectacular. Volunteers sold tickets, procured sensational packages and hosted the event. Frantic raffle competition and a hilarious play made for a fun evening.
Linda Hagen Miller and Chrisdee Imthurn spoke to the audience about traveling to Kopanga as part of a P4P team and thanked them for their support that evening. Chrisdee shared a testimonial from their trip that bears repeating.
“P4P’s education program has enabled 24 students to stay in school through high school scholarships. One of the most memorable days I experienced in Kenya was attending the scholarship awards ceremony where students received their award,” Chrisdee said. High school is not free in Kenya and these young people were shy but proud to receive help from P4P to stay in school. One of the principals who spoke during the ceremony said something that will always stay with me. He said, “Many people walk through your life, leaving footprints in sand. P4P walks through our lives leaving footprints in cement.”
