This week, May 4 – 8, 2009 is inner city kids week presented by CLICK (Contributing to the Lives of Inner City Kids).
CLICK is a dynamic fundraising conduit. When you make a donation, CLICK directs the funds to a wide range of programs that enhance the lives of inner city children… CLICK has directed donations to programs and services that include: meal programs, safe and enriching after school, programs, family literacy, sports for inner city teenagers, music and theatre programs, speech pathology, a golf skills program and more. In its short history, CLICK has already improved the lives of hundreds of Vancouver’s inner city children and teens.
For the next few days they will be hosting fundraisers for their causes, starting with an event at the Vancouver Art Gallery today.
The 5th annual “Pulling for Inner City Kids” tug of war is will kick off the week at 11:00am today where you’ll see the VPD and the CTV media team battle it out in front of the art gallery.
On Friday at 7:30pm, they will host the “Touch a Life” benefit concert with Five Alarm Funk along with top local student acts over at Van Tech Secondary [Google Map].
