Calling all LightHouse poets!

Attention all poets among LightHouse volunteers and clients–help us raise funds and win our own LightHouse Los Lonely Boys theme song!
The CTK Foundation, based in Austin Texas, has a funding program called Heart and Soul. The Heart and Soul program encourages the submission of a 4 to 8 line poem, expressing the heart of an organization’s service mission. The winning poem’s organization will receive a $10,000 grant and will have a song produced by the Los Lonely Boys to help the organization publicize its mission.

To send in a poem for consideration, please email your submission to Cherie Colmenares, Development Assistant at by August 10, 2009. Again, the poem should be 4 to 8 lines long and speak to heart of the LightHouse mission. We’ll choose the poem to submit on behalf of the LightHouse with the assistance of a small staff and/or volunteer committee.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Cherie or me. Thank you for your participation in this fun opportunity!
