Casa Tina’s Restaurant to Host Fundraiser for Homeless Children
PINELLAS COUNTY - Casa Tina’s Restaurant (an authentic Mexican restaurant located at 365 Main Street downtown Dunedin), will be hosting a fundraiser for Clearwater’s Homeless Emergency Project. All proceeds and gratuities will be donated to benefit HEP’s “KEY TO SUCCEED After School Program.” Along with fresh, healthy, authentic Mexican food, our kind hearted volunteers will be serving up a silent auction, raffle, and wine tasting at Pan y Vino Tapas Bar right next door.
The KEY to Succeed program at HEP began in 2000 as a partnership with the Eckerd Family Foundation and Pinellas County Schools to provide a broad array of out-of-school time services to homeless youth. The primary purposes of the KEY to Succeed program are as follows:
Provide out-of-school time opportunities for academic enrichment, including tutorial services to help homeless and transitional students meet state and local performance standards in core academic subjects such as Mathematics, Reading, and Language Arts.
Offer students a broad array of additional out-of-school time services, programs, and activities—youth development activities; drug- and violence-prevention programs; counseling programs; art, music, and recreation programs; technology education programs; and character education programs.
Provide career counseling, college preparatory services, and follow-up counseling for older students and youth leaving HEP and/or graduating from high school to promote the pursuit of higher education.
