" In addition to identifying new leaders, you helped some of our existing leaders refine their skills, as well as equip them with new skills that will help them become more effective. One of the most memorable moments for me will be the Young Angels of Ànimo Watts proudly presenting their earned check to me. The pride and sense of accomplishment was so evident in that room, that it brought me to tears. It was overwhelming, because that feeling of success is what I hope our students will feel throughout their life." Sue Jean Foulkes, Principal, Animo Watts Charter High School, 2010.

Some of us refuse to wear the same party dress more than once.  Some of us buy the wrong party dress and never wear it at all.  And some of us have worn the same pathetic party dress to so many black tie events we never want to see it again. Ever.  And can we talk about the brides who say, "Oh, you'll be able to wear it again."  Right.  Because that's just how much I love lavender. Now is the time to walk in to your walk-in and face your wardrobe.  Why?  Because YA is having a giant yard sale on June 23rd in the Palisades and we want to sell these charming reminders of your oh-so-social life to raise $$$$ for the Animo Watts Senior Prom.  So break it out, and bring it all on.  Shoes.  Men's suits.  Ties.  Accessories.  Flower-girl dresses. Yard Sale Guru, Barbara Dawson, is running the event, so you know it will be fab. We are $1,500 away from our $13,000 goal. info@youngangelsofamerica.org  See ya Saturday!
