PCYS presents Champions of Youth 4th Annual Awards Dinner

Please join Pulaski County Judge Barry Hyde for an evening honoring Advocate for Youth Award recipient Dawn Scott, Director’s Choice Award recipient Theresa Timmons-Shamberger, Visionary Award recipient, the Honorable Kathy Webb, and Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Rick Fleetwood. Doors open at 6 p.m. and dinner begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 9, 2017, at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel located at 925 South University Avenue in Little Rock.

Proceeds from the dinner benefit Pulaski County Youth Services’ year-round afterschool and out-of-school programs for students ages 5 – 19. All Youth Services’ programs are free-of-charge, helping hardworking Pulaski County families save an average of $5,000 a year on childcare. In communities all over the County, Youth Services’ programs are keeping kids off the street and out of trouble. Annually, thousands of local young people improve test scores, increase financial literacy, develop job skills, and build self-esteem in more than twenty Youth Services programs.

Youth Services knows how to do a lot with a little; they stretch every dollar and pinch every penny. Your donation will help students in the ACT Prep program earn higher test scores and students in the Youth Leadership Academy tour a college or university. Your ticket purchase or table sponsorship can help a child to attend an afterschool program, like Little Scholars, and an out-of-school program, like the Summer Day Camp. By donating to Youth Services, you can help put new athletic shoes on the feet of young students in the A Shoe Into Success program and help the young ladies from the Vision 2025 program participate in Dale Carnegie Public Speaking workshops. Your donations go directly to programs that inspire and enrich the lives of young people in Pulaski County.

Tickets are $75 each. For more information please call 501.340.6673 or email hmoody@pulaskicounty.net.
