Our Dragon Boat Festival is a unique event to the area, designed to promote healthy living, team building and community harmony. Introducing this up-and-coming sporting activity showcases the new growth of Conway. The Festival is an opportunity for influential companies, co-workers, families, and friends to unite as a team, raise funds to support our youth development, and to race for charity, fun, and fitness in a community-wide celebration.
The funds raised through the Dragon Boat Festival will go directly to our new project called "Uplift & Equip". This scholarship and mentoring program will help young women whose education has been delayed or interrupted due to pregnancy and who strives for success in the face of challenges. Junior Auxiliary will help the young mothers and child/children by supporting basic life skills needed to succeed scholastically, emotionally, medically and spiritually during the life of the scholarship. This is an innovative two generational approach, focused on supporting families to achieve new milestones in order to move toward economic independence and family stability. By increasing the capabilities of these young mothers, we strengthen their children's outcomes, as well as their own.
Your participation, sponsorship and donation to our Dragon Boat Festival will help the Junior Auxiliary of Conway raise awareness of our community's needs, provide additional financial and volunteer support to our current projects, allow our organization to spread our impact of offering aid to those in need, and furthering educational opportunities to the children of our community. We hope to have this event become our signature fundraiser and a celebration for years to come.
