It is uncommon to read about young people willingly giving of themselves and opening their hearts and their birthday to help others in need. But for soon to be 16-year-old Tatiyana of Dallas Can Academy, that is exactly how she plans on celebrating her Sweet 16 – giving to the other kids and families in her community. Tatiyana’s Party Like a Rock Star themed Sweet 16 Back-2-School Bash and School Supplies Giveaway will benefit the children in the Mesquite area.
Tatiyana decided that community service was the best way to celebrate her big day on Aug. 18, 2012 at the Florence Recreation Center, 2501 Whitson Way, Mesquite from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Admission is $3 and the first 50 kids to register at firstname.lastname@example.org are guaranteed to receive school supplies for the upcoming school year. There will be a special surprise performance from a special guest.
Applications for school supply assistance are available at Florence Recreation Center Mon. – Fri. from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. until Wed., Aug. 15. To get school supplies parents must being a picture ID, proof of address and proof of public assistance or part-time job. Registration for school supplies starts at 2:30 p.m.
Proceeds from this power packed event will benefit the Women Empowering Women Foundation, an organization dedicated to the eliminating domestic violence.
