If Education is the Key to the Future of Our Youth,
You Hold the Key to the Possibilities
ANNETTE’S 4th ANNUAL JAMAICA FUNDRAISER,
SPONSORED BY DELTA AIR LINES AND ROCK BOTTOM RESTAURANT AND BREWERY
Annette Fitterer of Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery invites you
to the 4th Annual Jamaican Fundraiser
Fort Williams Pre-School in Fort Williams, Jamaica
MINNEAPOLIS, MN : If education is the key to the future of our youth, you hold the key to the possibilities. The 4th Annual Jamaican Fundraiser returns to raise funds for the Fort Williams Pre-School Project, based in Fort Williams, Jamaica, on Saturday, March 5, 2011, 1-5 p.m. at Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery. Tickets are $25 for a single and $40.00 for two prior to the event, $30.00 for a single ticket or $50.00 at the door. The fundraiser’s grand prize will be a 32 inch LCD HD TV. All who purchase an event ticket will gain admission and will be entered-to-win the grand prize. No need to be present to win.
The funds will assist in the final stages of the building and roofing work started back in 2010 as well as contribute to the interior refurbishing of the pre-school. From electricity to a beautiful school, the Fort Williams pre-school continues to grow as a focal point in the community and a suitable learning environment for the future of its children. It will also be a way to hold community events which we then can make money to put back into the school.
A trip taken in 1995, Minnesotan Annette Fitterer was inspired and motivated to do something in a location that she found was her ‘home away from home.’ “Jamaica was at first just a simple vacation destination to me. I had a very humbling experience that made me take a look at my life and how grateful I should be. I had the opportunity to experience the culture, meet people who have become my dear friends and my family,” said Fitterer. I was introduced to a pre-school teacher of 34 years, Ms. Loretta Samms and it changed my life. Then she introduced me to the many children that she taught. “I could see what was needed by looking at those children’s faces. They loved their teacher and they loved to learn.
What could I do for this school and these children so that the only worries would be getting to class and learning.” Fitterer has dedicated her life to making sure that not only Fort Williams Pre-School receives the necessary means to provide the ideal learning environment, but to continue to help other schools in years to come.
For 2011, plans are in the works to finish the beams in the roof, landscaping, painting a mural on the building food and many different small projects requested by Ms. Samms. Materials, tools and workmanship will be needed to complete this goal. All the money goes directly to the project to make a suitable environment for these children to attend school.
