Tuesday, October 3rd, 2006
MIAMI, October 3, 2006 – AYUDA (Adults and Young Children with Unmet needs Deserve Attention), a nonprofit organization dedicated to help the lives of children and families who are underserved and/ or at risk in Miami-Dade County through education, life skills training, and programs that support self sufficiency, is raffling a fishing boat in order to raise funds to support the Early Childhood Scholarship Program in Overtown. Winners will be drawn on November 1st, 2006. Winners need not be present.
AYUDA’s EARLY CHILDHOOD SCHOLARSHIP FUND provides subsidies to children from infancy to 12 years of age who come from families who cannot afford to enroll their children in pre- or after-school programs. According to research, the first five years of life are the most important for social, emotional, physical, and mental development. To build a well-established community, AYUDA wants to ensure the success of every child regardless of family income.
The 11.5 bass tender boat has a retractor, docking lights and nightlights, 2 raised leather seats, 2 outboard electric trolling motors, trailer, batteries, charger, coast guard package, face mask, fins and a fishing rod. AYUDA partners in Overtown with Developer Salomon Yuken. His relentless support of AYUDA’s outreach office and the Happy Children of Overtown’s Child Care Center is deeply appreciated. Both offices are located at the new Arena Square at 2101 NW 3rd Avenue in Miami, 33127. AYUDA is very optimistic about the Boat Raffle! The boat is being shown at the AYUDA Corporate Offices – 7118 Byron Avenue, Miami Beach.
