4th Annual Best is Yet to Come Awards Dinner Banquet2-paint
On behalf of the youth at CCYA, we would like to invite you to our 4th annual “Best is Yet to Come” awards dinner banquet. This year’s theme is “Paint Your Canvas!” The evening will be a gathering of social workers, therapists, tutors, mentors, community volunteers, funders, Board members, and community partners to celebrate the lives and achievements of our kids. As a supporter of CCYA, you are welcome to attend!
All the boys and girls will be recognized for their accomplishments over the last year with awards ranging from “Best Attitude” and “Cleanest Room”, to recognizing those who made honor roll or participated in one of our Clubs. Everyone walks away with a trophy or medal of some sort! We’ll have former residents return as guest speakers, and current residents will share their talents through musical performances. It is a truly memorable evening that the kids look forward to every year.
Please help us celebrate the lives and achievements of our kids, and let us thank you for all you do to ensure that they succeed.
