VWAT’s first EVER Car Wash Fundraiser
Please help me congratulating our summer student, Tina, in leading the planning for VWAT’s first EVER Car Wash Fundraiser that happened just yesterday!!! The fundraiser was able to bring in a a TOTAL of $568 and was a HUGE blast for our youth group/volunteers to participate in. The money itself will help to fund our Vietnamese Lantern Festival in September! In addition, we enabled our youth a chance to work together as a team and got them really excited for future promotion and fundraising efforts.
Sending our special thanks for everyone who made this event a success, especially under a tight planning schedule we had no more than about a week to pull everything together and make it happen)! We most definitely could NOT have done this without you!

- Emillie’s mom, uncle and family for helping out on the day of and providing us with the venue
- Kim and Patrick for providing volunteers with lunch
