Visits to The Homes of Students We Support

"In August 2019, we had the privilege and the honor to visit the homes of some of the students we support.  The visit was eye-opening.  

If I had to use any one word to describe that experience, I wouldn’t use pity, or impoverishment, or destitution. Rather, I would say inspiration, because that’s what I felt being in their homes, looking into their faces, talking to them and their parents, getting a deeper understanding of their stories and their families who are so appreciative of the resources we’ve been able to provide them. In that moment, I was grateful – grateful for my mom who served as the catalyst for me to realize the importance of this work –grateful for everyone who has come  along beside me to help make this dream that I had come true.  In that moment I was also deeply inspired.  It filled my heart to see them through this lens of their real life.  I am amazed at the strength and determination of these kids to persevere and to do everything in their power to progress and complete their education. Please watch the video and you will understand what I mean." ~ Marlene Gordon, President, Lynne Mitchell Foundation

The Coral Gables Country Club

We hosted our fifth-annual philanthropic gala on Saturday, October 14th. The theme, A Night at the Masquerade Ball, was a stunning success that featured a luxurious sense of elegance and ambiance at the Coral Gables Country Club.  Guests enjoyed decadent cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a 3-Course Dinner, fabulous silent and live auction items, entertainment and a rocking good time at the live DJ After Party. Through silent and live auction bids and direct contributions, we raised over $100,000 during the event, all of which will go to resources that will help improve the quality of learning conditions for primary-school children in Jamaica.

 

This year’s gala, honored donors, including the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation, with Donor of Distinction awards for their contributions to leading gifts of financial support over the past 5 years, which have significantly helped the Lynne Mitchell Foundation to further its mission to improve the educational opportunities of underprivileged children in Jamaica. The Jamaican Ambassador to the U.S., Audrey P. Marks, made a special guest appearance to the event as well and was delighted to be in attendance.
