It has been a busy month for Vilakazi! We are back in the saddle now that the holidays are over. Here's what's been going on with us:
* Our Playground Throwdown Rock-Paper-Scissors Tournament raised more than $1,100! Thank you to everybody who came out, and congratulations to our winner, Kelli Dupuy! You can see photos from the event by clicking here.
* Our board has outlined our events throughout the spring. We've sent tentative dates for all our big activities. Our annual Wine for Wickets wine tasting will be later this year. An interest session for those who want to know more about going with us to South Africa in 2012 will be April 18. And our big garage sale will be May 20-21. We hope you can join us for all that's going on this spring!
* We are in the midst of filing our 501(c)3 paperwork, which is really exciting for our group! We're grassroots and completely supported by donations. We are hoping that our paperwork will be sent off to the IRS in the next week or two, and we're hoping to hear back from them this spring.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone for being so supportive of us! These efforts will mean children half a world away will have better lives.
