Donor and VIP Dinner 2016

by Patricia Cameron on December 19th, 2016

The "DONOR & VIP DINNER" for 2016 recognized CTYE's Volunteer and Donors of the Year.  The event was held at the Cornerstone Cottage on Bardstown Road, and it was a fabulous venue with excellent food and service.  

2016 Proved to be a year of firsts as well as a year that solidified programs and built long lasting relationships with an amazing group of kids.  This year's Volunteer of The Year was Ms. Pashens Fitzpatrick for her unwaivering dedication and support to the CTYE mission.  Our Donors of The Year were none other than Mr. Virgil and Mrs. Donna Fitzpatrick for their invaluable genoerosity and commitment to CTYE.  The support and dedication shown in 2016 has been indescribable and we are so thankful and excited for what 2017 holds!

Vanessa Anderson, CTYE's President and Founder, shared how CTYE was created and where CTYE is headed.  We are moving into 2017 with big plans for our Pop-Up Parent/Teacher Community Engagement Series starting in January.  Our Young Men's group ONYX will begin meeting the 2nd Saturday of each month in January 2017 for the first time from 12:30-2:30pm at 332 West Broadway, The Heyburn Building in Suite 614 and we are looking for Volunteers to help build this program.  Our biggest goal for 2017 is getting 25 Families enrolled into our Filling In the Gaps (FIG) program for the 2017-18 school year.  And in late 2017 we are launching our 2nd Time Around program for Grandparents who need some assistance navigating the new technological changes that have occured in the JCPS system that they may not be familiar with and we are excited to offer four weeks of training and education to assist. 

Our newest board member, Patricia Cameron, gave her testimony on why she is proud to serve the youth of Louisville and why it is so important to invest in the lives of our youth.

If you are looking to get involed and make a difference in the lives of youth in our communities don't hesitate and give us a call at 502-694-CTYE (2893) or email us at  We look forward to hearing from you!
