Message from the President Chris Davis
Dear Kids’ Chance Friends and Supporters:
Thank you so much for your contributions to our organization over the last twenty two years. Since our inception in 1997, Kids’ Chance of Pennsylvania has provided 898 scholarships for a cumulative total of $2,055,000. In the 2018-2019 school year, we were able to award 56 students a total of $164,250. Our success is in large part due to the constant support and commitment you have to our kids! It truly could not be done without you.
The Board is diligently working so the 2019-2020 school year is an even bigger success with more money for our kids! We have added new leaders to the Board to continue to support our mission as we move into the future.
Much of our support is raised through our events during the year. Our 14th Annual Golf Outing will be held on June 2 at the Hershey Country Club. It will be followed later in the year by two walk/runs, one in Pittsburgh and in the Lancaster area. We also count on support from our Annual Silent Auction which is held at the PA Bar Association’s Workers Comp Section Meeting in the Fall. We will play a very active role in Kids Chance of America Awareness Week in November, 2019.
We are also exhibiting in the PA WC Conference, Philly I-Day, PA Governor’s Safety Conference and playing an active role in WC Awareness Week. Stay tuned for details.
There is always more work to be done and many more students who need our help to achieve their educational dreams.
I would also like to announce there will once again be Partner Receptions. We are planning for the Philadelphia Partner Reception in April and Pittsburgh in early September. More details to come on these two events.
Thank you all for everything you have done to support this organization. I hope to see you at the 14th Annual Golf Outing on June 2, 2019 at the Hershey Country Club.
Here’s to more money for more kids!
