The scheduled date for this year’s Wheatley After Care fundraiser is Thursday, September 20th from 6 PM to 9PM at Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club at 1103 Bladensburg Road. Jimmy V’s will offer three free drink tickets to each person donating $20 or more.
Catrice Simpson runs Wheatley's After Care program, which has over 200 students ages K through 6th. This annual fundraiser has raised nearly $9000 the last four years, which made possible such projects as the play adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, a Halloween party with MPD, the creation of a yearbook by and for the students, kites for "high-flying kite day," fashion talent shows with prizes, field trips, and a host of other art and craft supplies that create teaching and learning opportunities for the kids in the program.
