Road to Greatness: 30 for 30 Annual Fundraiser! | New York Minded Gallery & Studio | Monday, 30. July 2018

Hey! This is Kenny, founder of Road to Greatness (R2G). Every year I usually celebrate my birthday with my R2G family on the 30th of June. This year I had to reschedule. My intuition told me to join the Protest against Family Separation in D.C. I couldn’t celebrate knowing there are kids being separated from their families, some on their own birthday. After I came back, I felt re-energized. I came back ready to reestablish the mission of the Road to Greatness, to cultivate leadership within our community, especially those who are less fortunate, and to serve: to serve the youth. To serve kids like my friends and I who in our youth were searching for guidance and found none.
This year is extra special for me because with this fundraiser, you will help us start a new program for a group of children living in temporary homeless shelters in Queens. To no fault of their own, they are in this predicament and while some might simply feel bad for these young people, I have hope. I know full well that the most adversarial of circumstances can be looked back on as tests of strength and tenacity that serve as a reminder of one's willingness not to give up; R2G is about helping them see the power of resilience. What is especially important is that children we serve will be able to look back and say that at their worst, they didn't give up. This is the beginning of their story.  Please join me and the R2G family on Monday, July 30th 6-8:30PM at NY Minded Gallery on 38-84 13th Street in LIC to jam to good music, share drinks, and share laughs for a great cause. We are thankful for donations! No donation is too small. Thanks again for showing your support as we continue on our own Road to Greatness. See you on the 30th!
