PHILADELPHIA, PA (April 25, 2012) — What started as a 70-day challenge is now down to its final days as Milton Owens’ Finance France campaign quickly approaches his May 1st deadline.
To help Milton reach his $5,000 fundraiser goal, the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Department is collaborating with the Owens family to host a food and bake sale at the Rivera Recreation Center on 5th & Allegheny Ave. on Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 12 to 4 p.m.
Community members are invited support Milton’s fundraising initiative by buying $10 food platters, drinks, and $2 desserts or by making $10 donations online to Finance France at Peerbackers.com.
If he can raise the funds for program tuition, fees and expenses, Milton will become the first of his family to travel internationally, receive academic credit for the program, and represent Philadelphia as a Student Ambassador to England and France with the global education organization, People to People Student Ambassadors.
Milton’s Peerbackers.com donation page will be active until April 30, 2012, so visit the “Finance France” campaign at http://peerbackers.com/projects/financing-france-the-70-day-challenge today if you would like to donate $10.
