kids looking to the future at CWB

2017 Breakfast for Kids Afloat

Our Annual Fall Fundraiser “Breakfast for Kids Afloat” was on October 26, 2017. A total of 94 individual donors gave generously, raising more than $36,400 that directly support CWB operations.

The program featured four students who were graduates of CWB’s 2016 & 2017 “Job Skills Program:” Alex Tabanda, Latifa Souleyman, Adia Childres & Hassan Dahir. They were supported by Jenn Charoni, the program lead, and Johnny Ohta, the program advisor, who shared the goals of the program and their personal experiences with the students. There was a lively Q & A where the audience had a chance to ask their own questions and connect with the students personally.

We also had seven CWB volunteers who arrived early that morning to assist the caterer, guide people to the parking, and greet the guests when they entered. As always, thank you to our volunteers who make all our events a success.

This video was specifically produced for this event and showcases the 2017 “Job Skills Program.” Feel free to share it widely. It speaks volumes about the value of this program and the strength of our burgeoning CWB community.

If you were unable to attend but would still like the opportunity to show your support,

All donations are applied to our CWB general operating fund.
