Alzar School Fundraiser


We would like to invite you to attend a free fundraiser breakfast in Boise, Idaho from 10-11AM on Saturday, May 1st.  This informative breakfast will be at the Microsoft Conference Center, which is in the 4th floor of the Idaho Independent Bank Building (401 W. Front).  A large portion of this event is to educate more people about what our nonprofit is achieving, and there is no minimum donation for attending.

As a 501c3 nonprofit, the Alzar School relies on the financial contributions of our network of supporters to enable us to achieve our mission of developing and educating teen leaders. Because we are in need of a “boost” (one translation of our Spanish name “Alzar”) to get the school to the next level, we are recruiting a “Founding Class” of donors, which you could become a member of.

If you are unable to attend the event, but would like to contribute to our school, you can do that directly online at:

You can also help us spread the word by forwarding this email to your friends and encouraging them to subscribe to our newsletter. We thank you for your support!

We had expected to go hit the Gutter or Main Payette this afternoon, but my daughters goat had other plans…

This is Dazzles little doe just minutes after she was born. I just started this post and got called out for another – she had twins :-)

One mom done, 3 more to go. Guess it will be a busy week!
