For a Better Tomorrow Presents . . . 

Kite Fest 2018



For A Better Tomorrow (FBT) is organizing its fifth annual Kite Fest Fundraiser. This event is organized to raise funds for local community and global non-profits.

Through sponsorships and donations collected, FBT plans to disseminate the net proceeds from the event evenly amidst four chosen non-profits. FBT’s goal is to provide at least $2,500 in financial support to each of these non-profits. Your generous donation to support this event, will not only honor someone or something special but enable four great causes to advance their humble undertaking. Join and help us achieve our mission- fly some kites too!

Free for all to attend. Kites are available for purchase on site!
