Dear Community Members,
On June 3, 2016 approximately 1700 young men and women will graduate from McKinney high schools. For the 13th straight year McKinney’s Project Graduation is dedicated to providing a safe, drug- and alcohol-free all-night event where our young people can celebrate their accomplishments.
Statistics show that many times drugs and alcohol are a part of teenage celebrations. This can result in sometimes fatal accidents and overdoses. At Project Graduation our seniors have the opportunity to spend graduation night with their friends playing games, enjoying food and winning prizes. Our only goal is to keep them and our community safe. We provide this memorable event at no cost to the graduates so that they all have a chance to attend.
We are asking for your help to reach our target of $100,000.00 in cash and donated foods and prizes to cover the cost of this huge event. We are a volunteer-run not-for-profit group; all donations directly benefit McKinney seniors. We appreciate any help you can give us---including the gift of time as many volunteers are needed to plan and run Project Graduation.
In addition to supporting this important project, those who can partner with us at a level of $1,000.00 or more receive advertising benefits.
Please read the enclosed material for additional information. Feel free to email me with any questions.
We are so pleased to announce that for the second year El Dorado Chevrolet is sponsoring us with a vehicle which will be our grand prize. A lucky senior will be drawn as the winner at the end of the night.
I hope we can count on you to help keep our kids and community safe on graduation night and be sure to check out our Facebook page.
