4th Annual Sanford Center Youth Outreach Program Fundraiser 2019

For the 5th year, Waitt Institute for Violence Prevention, along with the Kind World Foundation and other great sponsors, will be hosting a fundraiser for the Sanford Community Center at the Orpheum Theater in our hometown of Sioux City, Iowa on May 10th, 2019.

The event is free to the public and this year, will again use our tremendous local talent to entertain guests.  A huge thank you to the Orpheum Theater, Kristy Tremayne, Jeremy Pigg, and Joey Hartshorn for volunteering countless hours in preparation for the event.  We also want to thank Fitzgerald Grant and Laurie Arvin, and Sanford staff, and the incredible performers who give of their extra time for this great cause.

Funds are used to support the in school outreach workers, the after school program and summer programs for youth.  These programs assist children in need of extra assistance, and have been of great value in helping shape their young lives, as well as making the community safer and better for all.

Over 4 years, the community has raised nearly half a million dollars for these vital programs.
