The Kumasi Academy old students’ association of North America fundraising and Dinner Dance Event

N23The Kumasi Academy old students’ association of North America on Saturday, Sept 26th organized the first fundraising dinner dance at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center in Alexandria, Virginia-USA.
The objective of the fundraising emanates from the common goal of the general old students body to build a multi-purpose science laboratory to donate to the school on its 60th anniversary in 2017.
The event was attended by old students from as far back as the mid 60s to the new millennium, as well as affiliates of the school. The chairperson of the occasion, Mr. Anokye Poku class of 19() in his welcomed address laid down the objective for the gathering. He shared some of the great memories of his days the school and encouraged all guests to contribute generously.
Also in attendance was the President of the association in Ghana, Dr. Kwabena Dapaah Siakwan . In his keynote address and presentation, he showed a plethora of images depicting the progress of the projects and ongoing activities at the construction site. According to Dr. Dapaah, the initial part of the project (foundation and ground filling) which is usually the most difficult part is nearing completion. He indicated that a couple of old students have pledged to bear the cost of the ceiling and the roofing once the project gets to that level; and therefore urged all guests at the gathering to contribute towards the project which he considers very feasible considering the pledges. He also pleaded with all students in all other countries to organize themselves, especially at the year group levels to mobilize funds to support the project.
The fundraising ceremony was conducted by Pastor Ebenezer Doku, an old student who is currently the head Pastor of Logo Rhema Ministries based in New York with the help of Esi Mansa Addo of the 1994 year group who is also based in Maryland. The pair entertained guests to a very lively and creative event which witnessed many people giving generously to support the science lab project.
After the fundraising activity they dance the night away to great music to climax the occasion.
The organizers of this event do hereby appeal to all old students who could not make it to the event to visit www.kumacausa.org to make their contributions to the project and also register as an old student at www.kumacaalumni.org . The team is also considering organizing the next fundraising in New York and urges all to join in the campaign to tell a friend to tell a friend; to join us on facebook.com/kumacana
