A Pulitzer winning event to benefit A Positive Step of Monroe County
Billy Davis, founder of A Positive Step of Monroe County, right, and Miki Yaras-Davis, left, get warmed up for a day of shopping to benefit APSMC. On Saturday, March 14, the Lilly Pulitzer shop at 600 Front Street in Key West will donate 10% of all sales to A Positive Step of Monroe County to help fund the Idle Hands Summer Youth Employment Program, an APSMC program partially supported by and run in partnership with the City of Key West.
Each year, the City provides jobs for young people enrolled in A Positive Step’s Idle Hands Summer Youth Employment Program. The City also provides $35,000.00 towards the approximately $70,000 payroll for the program’s students and one staff person. APSMC must raise the remainder of the budget. So come to Lilly Pulitzer on March 14, celebrate the arrival of spring with some colorful new clothes, and know that you are supporting a great program for our island community’s youth.
A Positive Step of Monroe County is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving Monroe County’s highest risk kids and their families since 1999.
