Leadership Irving-Las Colinas Class of 2016

 

The Leadership Irving-Las Colinas Class of 2016 supports La Buena Vida boys with a place to enjoy sunshine, fresh air, fellowship and barbecue as class legacy project.

Groups from Texas Trees Foundation, TXU Energy, Plastronics, University of Dallas, Boy Scouts, and Singley Academy gathered this spring to plant trees, shrubs, flowers and lay down sod and build boxes for raised vegetable gardens.

LILC wants to complete the “La Buena Vida Backyard Project” by raising support for the costs contractor fee to pour a concrete patio, patio furniture, a barbecue grill and garden tools.

The project will culminate with a celebration/barbecue for the boys when our work is complete. Details will be posted on the La Buena Vida website.

To support or learn more about the project, please contact Dexter Freeman at dfreeman@irvingchamber.com or (214) 214-8484.
