TNA October 2013 meeting notice

Jimmy Valentine’s 6th Annual Fundraiser for Youth: Thursday, October 3

For the past 5 years, local business Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club has raised funds to support Webb-Wheatley’s after school programs. The funds raised have made it possible to engage our youth in positive and productive activities and projects, like a play adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, a Halloween party with MPD, the creation of a yearbook by and for the students, kites for “high-flying kite day,” fashion and talent shows with prizes, field trips, and a host of other art and craft supplies that create teaching and learning opportunities.

JVLHC Fundraiser 6

This year’s fundraiser will benefit youth activities throughout the community, and it is scheduled for Thursday, October 3, 6:00-9:00 pm at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club, 1103 Bladensburg Rd. NE. Jimmy V’s will offer 3 free drink tickets to each person donating $20 or more.

We’ll be able to accept cash and checks (and, we hope, credit cards) at the door. Checks can be made payable to Trinidad Neighborhood Association, with “JVLHC Fundraiser 6” in the memo.

For those unable to attend, please consider donating via TNA’s dedicated PayPal link. For those who prefer to donate by credit card in advance of the fundraiser, you can donate via PayPal and bring your receipt to the door:

TNA serves as the fiduciary agent for the fundraiser – by raising funds through TNA, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Jimmy Valentine’s and TNA are able to buy and directly donate items as and when needed. This means 100% of the money raised benefits the kids in our neighborhood.
