Donate while I shop? Sign me up!

Did you know that you can help CPY while shopping for everyday items and not even realize you’re doing it?  Amazon Smile is a service provided through the popular online store (click the link for more details).  It offers all the same products, pricing, and shipping services as Amazon.com, but with the added bonus that 0.5% of your spending will be donated to the charity of your choice at no cost to you!  We don’t want to be presumptuous, but we hope that’s CPY!

If you like to shop online, please consider signing up for Amazon Smile and choosing CPY as your preferred charity.  Every little bit helps!

Thanks to you!

From all of us at CPY, we just want to thank our community for coming out and supporting us at New Brighton’s Stockyard Days.  We had a great time managing the Kid’s Korral and how fun is it to watch our kids have a blast?

Again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for supporting us and your community!  Here’s to another 20 years of CPY!

It’s HERE!

The Kids Korral at Stockyard Days starts TONIGHT!  Come on down and have some fun in our inflatable park.  An all-day pass is only $20!  Here’s our hours:

Friday 5-9pm
Saturday 10am-dark (around 9pm)
Sunday 10am-4pm

And here’s a map!  See you there!!

Stockyard Days is Coming…

Greetings again!

Stockyard Days is just 2 weeks away, and we couldn’t be more excited!  Our lineup of inflatables is looking good – bouncy houses, slides, and even an obstacle course!

If you’re planning on being at Stockyard Days anyway (or even if you’re not), why don’t you sign up to volunteer with us?  Every volunteer helps us achieve our goals of serving at-risk kids in the Mounds View School District, and what better way to show your support than to give us a few hours of your time?  Check out our handy online sign up tool and fill in some shifts.  Thanks!

Summer Highlights at CPY

Our summer program is flying by as we are already concluding the sixth week of our 10 week summer program.  With this week being our “Service Community” week, our kids have been busy!  Here’s a couple of the things we’ve been up to:

  • Collecting books for Books for Africa
  • Packing meals for Feed My Starving Children
  • Pulling invasive weeds at Mississippi Regional Park
  • Planting trees for the City of New Brighton
  • Baking treats for the Police and Fire Departments of City of Mounds View & Brooklyn Park/Center
  • Making animal toys for the Animal Humane Society
  • Cleaning local parks for the City of Shoreview, Mounds View, and New Brighton.

Service to others has always been a pillar of CPY’s programming.  Overall, our youth have totaled over 350 hours of community service just this week!

With our annual Golf Ball Drop event and Stockyard Days Fundraisers just around the corner, please consider supporting those that support your community either through your time or through a donation.  Thank you!

 

CPY’s 2017 Golf Ball Drop

On August 6th at 3pm, Brightwood Hills Golf Course will be hosting CPY’s annual Golf Ball Drop during their own Stockyard Days Golf Tournament.  Stop by to say hello and watch it hail without risking your car’s beautiful exterior!

In case you don’t know how the drop works – you purchase tickets that correspond to a numbered golf ball.  The golf balls are then all dropped (surprise!) from above onto a putting green.  The ball closest to the hole wins up to $5,000!  If several balls end up in the hole, the prize is split among the winners.  You don’t need to be present to win.

Feeling lucky?  Get your tickets now by contacting us or stopping by Brightwood Hills on the day of the drop.  We’ll be selling tickets in person starting at 8:00 am.  Tickets are $10 each and support CPY’s continued efforts to support at-risk youth in our community.

Love Burritos? So do we!

CPY is so lucky to have such wonderful partners in the community!

On Tuesday, July 18th from 5-9pm, Chipotle in St. Anthony will be donating a portion of their sales to help CPY meet our 2017 fundraising goals!  If you love burritos (and we know you do), please stop by to take care of dinner and donating at the same time!  How’s that for efficiency?

As a reminder, you can find Chipotle St. Anthony in the St. Anthony Village Shopping Center off Silver Lake Road:

2701 39th Ave NE #128, St Anthony, MN 55421

Thanks and hope to see you there!
