The Youth Empowering Strategies! (Y.E.S.!) Community Health Board would like to invite you to be a Featured Silent Auction Donor for our 10th Annual Taste of Clemente Cocktail Reception & Silent Auction. The Taste of Clemente Cocktail Reception & Silent Auction is our primary community fundraiser.
As a Featured Silent Auction Donor, you will be listed on our website, tasteofclemente.com, and on our 2014 Taste of Clemente & Silent Auction Program Book. We will also acknowledge you during our event. Finally, you will also receive a complimentary ticket. We ask that your donation be valued at $40 or more.
Youth Empowering Strategies (Y.E.S.!) is our peer health education & advocacy program that originally was part of the Wildcats Student Health Center at Roberto Clemente Community Academy.
Y.E.S.! trains Humboldt Park, West Town and Logan Square community high school students to become peer health educators. We have an intensive 5-6 week summer training for which students have to apply, interview, then be selected to represent Y.E.S.! They learn to work as a team, how to speak publicly, issues surrounding health advocacy and how to teach effectively. We provide in-class peer education about nutrition and fitness, violence prevention, teen pregnancy prevention (abstinence plus), sexual health and youth health advocacy.
We would be honored to have you as a Featured Silent Auction Donor. We will follow up with you in the next few weeks. At that time, we will ask information regarding your donation, a description and its value. We may also ask to photograph the silent auction item so it can be viewed on our website.
The Taste of Clemente Cocktail Reception & Silent Auction will be held on Saturday, March 22nd, 2014 from 7:00 pm until 12 am at the Stan Mansion located at 408 N Kedzie Ave, Chicago, IL.
