This year our holiday festivities celebrated several events: the Tenth Anniversary of Tutors for Kids and a special recognition to our donors and funders. The event was held on December 12th at 3:00 PM – in the Sea Breeze Rec Center, The Villages. The event was open to all.
In addition, to the wonderful tutors who work with students every week, there are a large number of others who contribute unselfishly to Tutors for Kids – donations of time, expertise, dedication, and funds. They were recognized and honored. We did a trip down memory lane and recounted that ten years ago we started with six tutors in one school working with about twenty students. This year we have over 500 tutors in thirteen schools tutoring 2,600+ students each week.
A special fund raising raffle was sponsored by Dr. Thi Tran’s dermatology practice. The drawing had two items– a golf basket and a holiday tree. The raffle will continue at his office through December.
