Bay View Academy Coffee House Fundraiser
Coffee House takes place in the dining room of Bay View Academy twice a year, usually on a Thursday or Friday night. The tech crew turns the dining room into a quaint "coffee house" complete with a stage, lights and a soundboard. The Mercy Action Club charges an admission for the event. I attended a couple of the coffee houses and noticed that there was nothing going on during intermission. I asked the president of mercy action if I could hold a collection for the Kids Connect Chapter during intermission and the president of the Mercy Action club agreed. All I had to do was go up on stage, introduce myself and talk about the club a little bit and while I talked, several Kids Connect members passed around baskets for a collection.
The Kids Connect chapter always does really well with the coffee house collections. Just this past school year, the club was able to collect $100 for Kids Connect. We are very proud of our work and are sure that the club will be able to continue with coffee house collections in the future.
