For this particular offsite event, we provided 41 participants and their parents with entry into in the theater as well as with gift cards to McDonalds for them to have a meal after the event. The majority of those that attended the event had never seen a theater performance before; therefore, this experience was very unique to a great majority of our students.
As the turnout was so great and the feedback from the participants and their families was in high praise of the experience, we decided to return for another performance.

Holiday Festival and Coloring Activity

The final activity we had at our site was a holiday festival. This included a coloring activity, a movie projected in a separate room for those that didn't want to partake in the activity, as well as providing food and beverages. To keep with our mission we continued to provide homework assistance for those that needed it. Parental participation was at an all time high with 98% of parents participating in the festival by providing us with snacks and drinks.
To top this great day off, we had a visit from our sponsors and a special visit from Josh Newman, a previous congressional Senate representative of our 29th District. We thank all our sponsors, donors, and Josh Newman for stopping by to visit us.
