Junior Achievement – On a mission to inspire and prepare youth to be successful in a global economy.
This month we are pleased to share updates from one of our many great community organizations. Junior Achievement Waterloo Region provides programs in the areas of financial literacy; entrepreneurship and work readiness to students in our region.
We had an opportunity to meet with Brian Breckles, President & CEO of JA Waterloo Region. He shared there are over 200 K-8 schools in his area. JA’s fundraising efforts assist in the delivery of programs to children predominantly in grades 7 & 8. Next month JA will hold it’s 16th Annual Theatre & Auction Night on April 5th. It will be an evening of live entertainment, cocktails, appetizers and a silent auction!
This year the highlight is a performance of Hairspray the Broadway Musical at the Hamilton Family Theatre in Cambridge.
Brentwood has donated a free evening of limousine service for the night of the event. Watch for news later this week when we announce the lucky winner. We will also be releasing details of a way for you get a group together, enjoy a meal at your favourite establishment before arriving in style at the reception in plenty of time to bid in the auction.
We wish Junior Achievement Waterloo every success with this year’s event and hope you will get out and support our local youth.
