Please join us on Sunday, June 2, 2019 for VIDA’s 3nd Annual Bowl for Life 2019 between the hours of 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm at Kearny Mesa Bowl, San Diego, CA.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the LGTBQ Latinx Scholarship Fund 2020 dedicated to the individuals who actively promote human rights, equality, and opportunities for all.

High school and college students who identify as lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual or queer (LGBTQ) can often feel alienated by their peers and teachers, which influences school performance and self-esteem.  This is an added stress to the rigorous college application process, and of course, finding a way to pay for your college education.

To address some (if not all) of these issues facing LGBTQ Latinx students, VIDA goal is to fund and provide 2 $1,000.00 scholarships in 2020.  Requested donation is $30.00.

For sponsorship opportunities, please contact esteband@vidaeu.org

With your help, we can make a difference!
