The first annual Youth Exchange Cultural Celebration will take place on Thursday, April 11th, 5:30-8:30 pmand is hosted by the Coulee Region Youth Exchange Council (CRYEC)!  We are inviting you to come to this exciting cultural event!
The CRYEC has been hard at work planning an event that will give you a chance to learn about our Youth Exchange students and their home countries.  The students have hand-picked recipes that represent their culture and are working with local chefs to let you sample their “comfort food.” It will be held on two different nights at the La Crosse Club, to ensure an intimate setting and allow you an opportunity to interact with the students. 
We have students from Ecuador, Finland, Poland, Spain, Thailand and Korea this year.  As part of their year with our Rotary Clubs, they’re given great opportunities to travel around the United States.  Funds raised from this event will assist the students with paying for the two week trip in June. Most students take on odd jobs as they spend the year to assist with their fundraising.   Our event will allow them to focus on their experience with our clubs instead of figuring out how to raise the funds on their own.
Hosting this event is very exciting for the CRYEC, as it’s the first of its kind. In addition to attending we hope you or your business will consider being part of our success through a sponsorship. Information regarding available sponsorship opportunities and marketing benefits at each level are enclosed.
If you wish to attend, tickets can be purchased online at the following links.  Tickets are limited to 75 people, so get yours today!
