Fundraiser to aid kids in stressful situations

Citizen Staff Writer

Three University of Arizona students are holding a fundraising luncheon Saturday for the Shyann Kindness Project at the Outback Steakhouse, 4871 E. Grant Road.

The project assists children in “stressful situations” and seeks to inspire others to perform “random acts of kindness,” according to the nonprofit’s web site.

The students, Anna Townley, Roger Altobelli and Lauren LePage, hope to raise $2,000 through sales of tickets to the noon lunch. Outback is donating the food and preparation, LePage said in a news release.

Agency director Sandra Rosati said in the release that donations have fallen off this year and the project needs funds to purchase toys and other items for children and money for operating and transportation costs.

The project is named after Rosati’s adopted daughter who died in 2005 at age 7 of complications from several ailments including cerebral palsy.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for children. For information or to purchase tickets, call 991-7009 or go to www.shyannkindness.org.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
