Educational Helpers Needs Your Help For a Great Cause!

EducationalHelpersHi, my name is Peyton Mahlmann! I am selling tickets to a Homecoming Fashion Show and would love for you to be there!! It is a fundraiser for Educational Helpers which is a non-for-profit organization that was created by Isabel Uzelac.

When she was 7 years old, she realized that there were too many children that lacked the proper tools to start school. With the help of her parents, she was able to start an organization that has the opportunity to raise money, through events like this, and purchase school supplies for children in our area who don't have the money to afford them. Over the past 9 years, they have been able to supply over 800 backpacks filled with school supplies for children ranging from kindergarten to twelfth grade.

Isabel said, "By providing these children with the proper supplies to start school, we hope that they will become more passionate about going to school and making a difference with their education."

With Homecoming Dance season coming upon us, this is a great chance for moms and daughters to enjoy a fashion show full of beautiful dresses! It will be held on Sunday, August 30 from 11-2:30 at Avalon Manor Banquet Hall in Merrillville, IN.
