Preparations for the Sandy Springs Mission’s 2017 Celebration of Hope events are underway, and we hope you’ll join us as a sponsor. The Cocktail Party & Silent Auction will be held on Saturday, August 19, 2017, and the Golf Challenge on Monday, August 28, 2017. All sponsors will receive 2-for-1 recognition at both events.
These two affairs are our primary fund raising events and benefit the Mission’s highly successful after-school and summer camp programs serving Latino students attending Lake Forest Elementary, High Point Elementary, Ridgeview Middle and Riverwood High schools. Currently, only 62% of Latino students in Georgia will graduate from high school. However, over 90% of the students in the Mission’s programs will earn their diplomas – most the first in their families to do so.
At the Mission, we envision a community where all Latino students graduate from high school empowered with the life skills necessary to make wise decisions in life. Whether they go on to college or directly to work, graduates of the Mission are equipped with the tools they need to be successful. Each program is designed to transform our students’ lives as well as create a lasting legacy for their families.
Our programs could not happen without the support and generosity of sponsors like you. We ask that you consider a sponsorship of the 2017 Celebration of Hope events today. Sponsorship levels are attached.
We believe academic success is essential for both our children’s future and that of our community. With a diploma in hand, success is within reach, and everything is possible.
Thank you in advance for your consideration. If you are interested in participating as a sponsor, please mail your check made out to Sandy Springs Mission, 850 Mount Vernon Highway NW, Sandy Springs, GA 30327.
