Support Earth Island Institute - Bay Area Wilderness Training
Like to drink wine and eat pizza? Passionate about the outdoors?
Then come to our wine tasting and pizza party at ZPizza in San Ramon. While enjoying exquisite wines and delicious pizza, we'll talk about how we are trying to raise money to introduce at risk youth to the outdoors.

I hope to see you Thursday, May 15th from 6:30-8:30 pm at ZPizza in San Ramon. Please email me if you have any questions about the event or would like to know more about how to get at risk kids into the outdoors.
Thursday, May 15th from 6:30-8:30 pm at ZPizza in San Ramon. Click this ZPizza link for map and directions. The party is to benefit an event that I will be doing in late July called Climbing for Kids. In short, in exchange for raising $3,500, I'll get the chance to go on a guided climb up this mountain in Wyoming. Anyone know what it is? The money that I raise will support Bay Area Wilderness Training (BAWT), a non-profit organization that gets at-risk and underprivileged youth outdoors. For every $1,000 raised, an average of 17 kids will get outside on trips with experienced adults using the best gear in the outdoor industry. In total, if I reach my fundraising goal, the money that is raised will be affecting the lives of over 50 kids. As I'm sure you've noticed, childhood obesity has tripled since 1980, and, with the current climate crisis, environmental stewardship has become increasingly important. The way to impart this onto today's youth is to take them outside, make 'em sweat, and introduce them to the beauty of the outdoors!
Check out this flyer for event details. It's $25, but there will be free pizza, wine, and music. There will also be a raffle with prizes such as San Fransisco Opera tickets, California Shakespeare tickets, passes to Golden Gate Fields, and many, many more. Tickets are 1 for $5, or 3 for $10 .
If you can't make it to the event but believe in and would like to support the cause, you can donate at the "Donation Page": http://www.climbingforkids.org/about/donate.php4. Just enter in my last name (Singh) and you'll see "Amitpal Singh" pop up. Some of you may know other people going on this trip. You can also/alternatively donate to them using this link.
Thanks for your time. If you would like to know more about the fundraiser, the name of the mountain, or Climbing for Kids, please feel free to email me.
