Promise Event supports bold, fearless living

Submitted By Janelle Evans

On Saturday, April 21 Boldly Me will host its 6th annual ?Promise Event? at the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose?s Dominican Center. This event will bring the local community together to support the organization?s mission while promoting healthy living.

Boldy Me?s vision is to help people transcend the emotional trauma caused by differences due to birth conditions, medical treatments, injury, disease, and self-perception. Individuals will embrace themselves and pursue their life dreams confidently and fearlessly. The mission is to educate, mentor, and support individuals so they can achieve their own unique potential. Our purpose is to build self-esteem and public awareness for those who feel different, and focus on prevention and early intervention to strengthen individual resiliency.

Boldly Me focuses on creating activities that encourage our communities to relax and enjoy their lives to the fullest despite the disability, disease, or other differences they are facing. These differences may include, but aren't limited to, hair loss, weight issues, burn injuries, physical injuries, birth defects, organ removal, sensory problems, and degenerative disorders. We help people build their self-esteem by teaching them how to have self-compassion, be physically well, and to gain financial stability.

Boldly Me?s Promise Event will be hosted by our Executive Director Kathy Kimberlin. The evening will feature a performance by Dream Achievers Band and Boldly Quest Students, a silent auction, dinner, and a dessert auction. Some of the featured guests are Fremont Unified School District BoardmemberYang Shao, Fremont Mayor Lily Mei, Santa Clara County Supervisor Dave and Patti Cortese, and California Assemblymember Kansen Chu. Bring your family and friends to help build our community! The event?s $100,000 fundraising goal will be used to fund programs and workshops for the youth who complete all phases of the Boldly Me program.

Kaiser Permanente, Fremont Bank Foundation, The Candlelighters, The Brees Family (in honor of Pam Giffin Brees), Jason and Alanna Powell, Dr. Andrew Wong, LaBelle Psychological Services, Robson Homes, Eliane Selwan, REALTOR of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Reliance Partners, and Mayor Lily Mei have sponsored this community event.
