MLKSA will host fundraiser for children’s hospital
The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship Association will host a full evening of entertainment in the “Is it in You?” fundraiser to raise money for the Children’s Specialized Hospital in the University Center at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 8.
The theme of the event, Finding Your Inner Child, was chosen to help people remember their youth. The Children’s Specialized Hospital is the largest pediatric rehabilitation center in the United States. MLKSA realizes that these children do not have as many opportunities to enjoy their childhood as other children and this fundraiser is a way to remind them and others not to take their youth for granted. This fundraiser is a way to provide both financial and moral support for the hospital.
The admission fee is $10 per person and includes a formal dinner along with 10 raffle tickets. Extra raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 for five tickets, $8 for 10 tickets and $12for 15 tickets. Tables for eight can be purchased for $70. All the proceeds will go to the Children’s Specialized Hospital.
