Pearl Oden’s Hoop 4A Cause – July 15

Get ready to have some fun July 15 as we get the community together for a good ole basketball tournament for a GREAT CAUSE! The purpose of this fundraiser is to help deserving kids receive a Konnected to Excellence Scholarship. We’ve found that 75% of parents with youth interested in performing arts are unable to afford the cost. As a result, these youth miss opportunities to develop in areas of interests to keep them productive and active, building confidence and self-awareness.

Check Out Our S.P.A.R.K. NC Painting Project

We had an amazing time bringing the community together this past weekend as we all talked, laughed and painted. Everyone really thought that the S.P.A.R.K. NC Project was a great idea to make bus stop areas more interactive. We expressed to the how Kaboom and their Play-everywhere grant made it possible. We would like to thank everyone that was a part of this process because it wasn’t easy! Thank you to Quick Shop & University Park (Dooby Shop) for allowing us to paint on their property. Also thanks to  Fit and Fun Playscapes, Studio DBS, Let’s Ride Records, Blaklaybel,GDMG,DB Images, TUK & The Konnected Team! Continue reading “Check Out Our S.P.A.R.K. NC Painting Project”

Konnected Community Fest

 

The First Annual Konnected Community Fest makes a commitment to working with Local Authorities and other community partners to enliven and celebrate the Queen City. The strategy for this partnership is to ultimately improve the quality of life in the inner city by encouraging community organizations and businesses to work together. The Konnected Foundation will facilitate the event with special emphasis on staging, placement of stations and a comprehensive flow of traffic. Safety, timeliness, and efficiencies are top priorities. This will be a free event in terms of entry and parking. To offset operational costs a nominal fee will be charged to qualified vendors. To avoid interruptions in the city’s day to day operations; yet maximize the opportunity to attract patrons, the festival will mostly be facilitated outside in an enclosed area around a black top and playground area.
