Our time to gather, reflect, celebrate, and party with each other is just around the corner. And you are ALL invited! Please come and help us make this anniversary commemoration a big success. The reason we are coming together, of course, is not only our emotional commitment to the children of Ethiopia but also our commitment to putting our feelings into action.
Can you believe it’s been ten years? Ten years in the life of a nonprofit is huge. It represents ten years of trial and error, ten years of learning, ten years of success and yes, a few failures. But ten years of making a difference in the lives of Ethiopian kids is no small thing. To the world the contribution we’ve made is tiny, but to those individuals it is life changing. If you could see their eyes when they arrive at our gates and then observe the changes in their faces once they are on a regular, nutritional meal schedule in addition to learning their numbers and letters…and honestly, just learning to play and to be themselves, it would fill your heart with warmth.
But we do not only have a history of giving hope, options, education, and opportunities to young people, we have a future. The Fregenet Foundation is on solid financial footing thanks to supporters like you. We anticipate being around for a very long time because clearly we have tapped into a mission, a desire to make a difference for these valuable individuals that life has not been kind to. If our ideas and our school had not seemed important to people we would have closed our doors many years ago, but instead we are looking forward to our next ten.
Saturday, September 20, 2014 is the anniversary celebration at:
St. Mary’s Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church
5707 Shenandoah Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90056
Time 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Celebration includes, Buffet dinner, live music entertainment by Ethio Cali Band, A Retrospective Presentation, A Key note speaker, Door Prizes and much more, ushered by our Master of Ceremony Ron Yavenieli.
So please come and join with us to celebrate, to party with others who have the same desire to make a difference for Ethiopian youth, and to help us kick off our next decade of providing the largest element of hope and change in the lives of the children we touch.
