GOAL: TO SPONSOR 500 YOUTH APPLICANTS from local Boys and Girls Clubs, low-performing schools, and low-income communities in attending the 29th International Festival.
Each year, International Focus, Inc. celebrates and shares world culture through the International Festival. The 3-day festival offers many activities and opportunities for children to experience and appreciate many different cultures of the world here in our own community of Raleigh. In addition to face-painting, storytelling, and games, children are able to travel through and learn about different cultures as part of the passport scavenger hunt. Other activities include sidewalk cafes, performances, music, and delicious, authentic food.
International Focus, with the support of our community partners, strives to make this opportunity a reality for many children who may not have access to the resources needed to attend the festival.
In bringing our community this event, your participation and contributions will go towards funding our local disadvantaged youth, with complete admission (including food vouchers, transportation and supervision for each child).
Festivities start at 6pm, all ages, families welcome.
