October Donation Give-away Winner Announced! Congrats goes to...

We are thrilled to announce the winner of our fourth Donation Give-Away drawing of 2016! Congratulations goes to Stacy Agee, Director of Communications & Development at Fortress Youth Development Center (Fortress YDC) in Fort Worth, Texas. Fortress YDC brings hope to the lives of at-risk children by providing resources that will help them break the cycle of generational poverty. The programs are designed to ignite spiritually, engage relationally, and equip academically. It's our honor to be able to donate a 5-night stay at the spectacular Waikiki Parc Hotel in Hawaii, a Preferred Hotels property, for their use in an upcoming fundraiser. After the drawing, we reached out to Stacy to find out how she plans to use the prize to generate more revenue at the upcoming 9th annual StoryLand Dinner and Auction. We were blown away by her story! Read on to learn more about Fortress YDC's work bridging the education gap in Fort Worth, Stacy's fundraising challenges and successes, and get a sneak peek at our next prize. An urgent mission Many people assume all students in America have the same opportunity to succeed in life. A recent study by advocacy nonprofit organization Children at Risk shows otherwise. They compared 1,059 elementary schools in Texas and found that one school in Fort Worth was ranked number 1,020, while another school just 5 miles away was ranked number 10. It's clear not all kids have the same opportunity. Fortress YDC is here to help close that gap.
