Events

Acts4Youth hosts several events to draw attention to the needs of the youth it serves and raise funds.

Bowl-a-thon!

Bowl4Youth is about more than knocking down pins. It’s about raising funds to start a new reading and math tutoring program at Walter P. Carter Elementary/Middle School where 82% of students at the school are well below grade level.

We invite you to make a difference as a team captain or individual bowler. Being a captain involves recruiting 3 or 4 additional team members, committing as a team to raise a minimum of $200 for this new program, and then coming together for a 2 1/2 hour bowling party on January 25th, 1 – 3:30 pm, at Parkville Lanes.

Acts4Youth Benefit Dinner

Last year's dinner was held on April 11th. The guest speaker was Mr. Johnny Shelton, the Baltimore Ravens Team Chaplain/Spiritual Advisor. Students held a prominent role in the event, themed "Roots & Wings."

Mr. Shelton followed a lineup of previous year's inspirational keynote speakers, including former Baltimore City mayor Kurt Schmoke; author and radio program host Wes Moore; and Dr. Santelises, CEO of Baltimore City Schools.

This year's benefit dinner date will be announced in late Oct. If you would like more information about this event, please contact Lesley Simmons at lsimmons@acts4youth.org.
