Kids Helping Kids The Key to YouthWorks Fundraising — Dave Ettl

Memorial Hospital’s YouthWorks program is all about kids helping kids and one of the most successful ways they do that includes a pageant for high school boys.  The initiative which started at Eisenhower High School and grew to include other area schools, has raised more than $600,000 since its inception in 2001.  The YouthWorks Council has allocated money for projects such as purchasing necessary equipment for the the hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Uunit, as well as supplementing Children’s Village therapy services, among countless other items and services. In essence, YouthWorks is truly a kids-helping-kids, full-circle initiative.

The YouthWorks 2014 pageant season is off to a great start as students from five local participating high schools began raising funds to support the children’s health fund. The pageants are the culmination and celebration of their hard work.  You can still lend support to the program by attending one or more of the three upcoming pageants:

Mr. East Valley, Friday, March 21, 7 p.m. at East Valley High School

Mr. Sunnyside, Saturday, March 22, 7 p.m. at Sunnyside High School

Mr. Eisenhower, Wednesday, March 26, 7 p.m. at Eisenhower High School

“The money from YouthWorks supports vital health services for children in Central Washington, and the effort to raise this money through YouthWorks showcases the ability of high school students to recognize and support a cause they view as important,” says Katie Trammell, coordinator for Memorial’s YouthWorks program.
