The first fundraiser of the 2011-2012 GV Leadership Program is underway. The highly successful ‘Wreath and Garlands’ fundraiser gives participants the opportunity to develop important life skills while raising money for the Project Fund. This seasonal fundraiser is a major feature of the GV first-year program.
All proceeds are directed into the student’s project fund that supports their upcoming trip to Guatemala. The proceeds from this fundraiser pay for school construction and reforestation as well as providing scholarships for Guatemalan youth to participate in GV.
The 2 foot diameter wreaths made from fir, cedar, juniper and pine cones are being sold for $22.50 and the 75 foot cedar garlands cost $63. The wreaths and garlands will be distributed on November 21 between 3-7 pm at El Centro de la Raza building parking lot. Orders can be submitted to the GV office by calling (206) 322-9448 by November 17.
