Pheasant Run Resort PRESSROOM
New Educator-Led Non-Profit Coalition of Schools Educating Mindfully (COSEM) Fundraiser
ST CHARLES, IL - Friday, February 8th, 2019 - The new educator-led nonprofit Coalition of Schools Educating Mindfully (COSEM) is having a fundraiser on Thursday, February 28, from 6:00-9:30, at Pheasant Run Resort in St Charles. Teens, parents and other community members are all invited!
From 6-7pm attendees will receive 3 give-away/raffle tickets to place in the raffles of their choice—from $10K in mindfulness and yoga resources—such as books, programs and curriculums. At 7pm we'll watch a film screening of May I Be Happy and meet the filmmakers. Then at 8:45 we'll post the raffle winners and everyone can continue their learning at the Resource Expo. The filmmakers will also be getting footage for a new project and will be interviewing some Expo attendees.
All evening long Mindful Schools will be in a separate quiet room hosting an exhibition of mindful room ideas for visitors to try out activities and practices to inspire the creation of their own mindful spaces in their schools and homes.
This fundraiser supports mindfulness-based social-emotional learning in schools. Part of our mission is to give scholarships to educators in need for our annual Educating Mindfully Conference and to help schools in need get funding for initiatives that start or grow mindfulness and yoga programs.
Pre-register for the fundraising event by February 26 for $20/person. No onsite registration. Learn more and register at EducatingMindfully.org.
