The 13th Annual Lighting the Way - Scholarship Fundraiser is one of three major fundraising events for Envision Children. Ticket sales and donations provide scholarships to the organization's Academic Summer Enrichment Program (ASEP).
The ASEP is an eight-week summer educational day camp accredited by the American Camping Association and the Ohio Department of Education. Student instruction is concentrated on math and reading, but includes electives in other STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) subjects.
The two primary goals for ASEP are to mitigate or eliminate summer learning loss and to help students not performing at Ohio proficiency rates for math and reading to get back on track for their grade level.
The event include:
- Live and Silent Auctions
- Testimonials from Students in our Kindergarten Challenge and Extended Day Program
- $10,000 Challenge
- State of the Organization from Executive Director Matt Hughes
- Live Music—"Like Minds”
- frican American Families For Educational Excellence Scholarships
- McClung McConney Scholarship
- Lighting the Way Awards
Your support can make a difference with our children's education as they pursue academic excellence through the Envision Experience.
