The organizers of Kazapalooza are excited to announce the total raised this year from our event in June is $8,000. We will be donating $533.00 each to Dream Prosperity, SPOON, and Two Hearts For Hope.
As some of you may already be aware, the head of Antares, Laura Rosier, lost her dear and supportive husband a few short months ago. During the past few months and weeks there has been some restructuring of this organization. At this time the organizers of Kazapalooza wish to hold the funds set aside for Antares Foundation until November 1, 2011 in order to give the staff an opportunity to reorganize and bolster the support of its sponsors and volunteers. At the end of this period we will reevaluate the situation and make another announcement. There are many questions we feel must be answered and issues dealt with in order for us, as stewards of your donations, to proceed.
We wish all of our sponsored charities the best and look forward to sharing updates with our families on how donations have been used to support the children in Kazakhstan.
