We kicked off 2017 with a very special international guest. The Boys and girls of the Eyes Wide Open Mentoring program had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Eren Kilic, son of Mr. Serdar Kilic and Mrs. Sinem Kilic the Turkish Ambassador.
Eren; a first year university student in the UK, took time out to play trivia games, eat pizza and create posters for an upcoming fundraising event, to be hosted by the Turkish Ambassador and his wife. The Kilic family continued the spirit of giving by presenting each child with gift bags filled with winter gear, including coats, boots, and other items.
‘This is a wonderful opportunity for these kids, Eyes Wide Open and the Hive!” said Sharon Dennis, Executive Director of Eyes Wide Open Mentoring.
‘Children are Children, All Over The World’ is the theme behind the posters being created by the kids. Each poster will be on display at the upcoming fundraising event to be held next month.
