BEREA, Ohio – October 7, 2014 – As part of our mission at Working Animals Giving Service for Kids (W.A.G.S. 4 Kids), we maintain a strong commitment to and belief in the ability of children who are able, to help those not as fortunate as themselves. Today we are proud to announce our “Kids Who Can” program, designed specifically to empower individual students and youth groups to engage whatever individual gifts and talents they may have, in benefit to local children challenged in their everyday lives.
Already the 4H kids of Lake County have made a difference by raising over $9,000 in 5 minutes at the 2014 Lake County Fair in memory of daughter, sister & friend, Susie Mettler. (See: http://youtu.be/zaG2I1_h_Pw). Local student athletes of the Grindstone Charity Classic are anxiously awaiting their 2nd Annual Spring Showcase (www.grindstonecharityclassic.com) for March 2015. Girl Scouts of America, Boy Scouts of America, Junior Quota Club of Lake County and more have pledged their partnership with “Kids Who Can” and are developing their youth empowerment projects with guidance from “Kids Who Can” Program Director, Mrs. Tina Mettler. As the charity that Cleveland grew, W.A.G.S. would like to invite you to join us and help get the new program off to a resounding start.
Please join us Saturday, October 11, 2014 at Bacci Park for the Village of Cuyahoga Heights Corn Roast from 4:00pm to 10:00pm to enjoy a family fun day, learn about the benefits of the new “Kids Who Can” program and how it works! There will be live music, corn hole tournament, hay rides, pumpkins, face painting and fireworks at dusk! Enjoy corn, hot dogs, chili and refreshments! “Beer Garden” proceeds benefit W.A.G.S. 4 Kids.
