COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) – The Northern Kentucky Youth Foundation is embarking upon a fundraising endeavor to afford the opening of our first Coffee House Café and Learning Center, designed to serve Northern Kentucky's at risk 7th to 12th grade students.

As a concerned and contributing member of our community the NKYF would like to solicit your help in reaching our goal of $50,000. On November 3rd, NKYF will be hosting a fundraising dinner at Chalk Food and Wine, located at 318 Greenup St., between 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. to support the effort. There is limited seating of 85, and it's $100 per plate. Please RSVP by October 29, 2010 – if you have any questions call (859) 795-1506.

Our mission is to help youth between the ages of 12 and 18 develop their full potential through collaborative, social, educational and recreational programs. Programs are funded entirely by contributions and modest activity fees. At this time the Northern Kentucky Youth Foundation does not receive local, state or federal funding and are fully supported by philanthropic contribution.
