RYP Culture Clash Gala a Success
Refugee Youth Project (RYP), a joint program of BCCC and the
International Rescue Committee, held its Culture Clash: A Celebration
of International Fusion winter gala Friday, Feb. 21 at the
Pennsylvania Ave. AME Zion Church.
140 people attended the event, which helped raise more than $5,000 to
support general programming and field trips. After one of RYP’s students
previously said all she wanted for her birthday was to go to the Maryland
Zoo, the RYP team composed a short, one-minute movie to show to guests to
encourage donations. After the movie concluded, RYP raised over than $2,000
– in just ten minutes! This money will be enough to cover two field trips.
Pomplon, Director of Social Service at Notre Dame Preparatory School, was
awarded the first-ever RYP Community Engagement Award. An RYP volunteer for
over three years, he drives student volunteers to RYP each week. “He not
only provides friendship and mentorship to RYP students, but to more than
175 Notre Dame Preparatory students who have volunteered in part because of
his efforts,” said Kursten Pickup, RYP Coordinator.
