Ada Jenkins Center press release
On Jan. 17, The Peninsula Club will be transformed into an icy wonderland to benefit the Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson. Partnering with sponsors and individuals, this unique event is designed to raise awareness of the Center and its many programs while raising much needed funds to help meet the needs of our neighbors in the Lake Norman area.
Last year, the event raised $40,000 to help fund activities including the After-School Program, which provides tutoring for 60 area elementary children; the Mobile Community Dental Clinic and the Center’s free medical clinic. With a broad array of medical, youth education, crisis assistance and economic independence programs in place, the Ada Jenkins Center has a history of stretching funds to ensure this mix of comprehensive services remains.
“The success of ICE 2009 is crucial, now more than ever,” said event co-chair Lisa Koenig. “The state of our economy, both locally and nationally, has already caused the number of clients we serve to rise dramatically. We absolutely need help from our community to make sure no one has to face eviction or loss of heat this winter.”
Sponsors who are generously supporting ICE 2009 so far include: Ingersoll Rand; Interstate Cycle; Presbyterian Hospital-Huntersville, Harris Teeter, Aquesta Bank, McGuire Nuclear Station-Duke Energy, Artisan Signs and Graphics. Sponsorships are still available; for more information on these or to purchase tickets, please contact Lisa Koenig at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us at http://www.adajenkins.org/ice.
The Ada Jenkins Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping citizens in the communities surrounding Lake Norman.
