Proceeds from this event will support the renovation of the Science Building at Kfar Silver Youth Village of Hof Ashkelon, Israel, a 60-year-old school which serves some of the most disadvantaged students in the periphery of Israel. The Ohio Region has taken on the goal of raising enough funds by the end of this year to renovate the Kfar Silver Science Building and bring it into the 21st century as a state-of-the-art learning laboratory. By making this an Ohio community project, we are hoping to meet this goal, showing once again the great strength that comes from the community working together.
