LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY– Children Have Options In Choosing Experiences Inc. is hosting a community event on Friday, September 18, 2015. We are inviting local restaurants, business and community members to participate in this annual fundraiser to raise money for services provided to young people in the Louisville-Metro Community. The event will be held at St. Michael Antiochian Orthodox Church (Parish Hall), 3701 St. Michael Church Drive, Louisville, Kentucky  40220 from 6:00PM to 9:30PM. Children Have Options in Choosing Experiences better known as C.H.O.I.C.E. Inc is a “comprehensive non- profit prevention and early intervention, alcohol, tobacco and other drugs program designed to guide young people to a drug-free life”.  C.H.O. I.C.E. Inc. has been serving the local community for over 20 years through the generous support of local businesses, organizations and in-kind donations from various groups and individuals within the community.


"We are excited for the opportunity to bring the community together to break bread amongst each other in hopes of providing resources to make a difference in young people’s lives,” said Liz Sias-Shannon. Executive Director of C.H.O.I.C.E. Inc.


While C.H.O.I.C.E.

C.H.O.I.C.E. Inc. purpose is to provide the needed services that will allow youths and adolescents to reach their maximum potential via a positive, healthy drug-free lifestyle. Event tickets can be purchased for $25.00 to enjoy samples of star dishes from local restaurants’ and businesses’ throughout the community. Children tickets can be purchased at a discounted rate. Ages 12 and under will be admitted for free, ages 12-13 will be offered a discounted rate at $10.00. Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door. We will have entertainment for all, live  and a silent auction during the event for a night of family fun!


“C.H.O.I.C.E. is an amazing program that does a miraculous job of changing the lives of young children that have not started on the right foot at life,” wrote Austin Riley, former C.H.O.I.C.E. “Dare to Dream” Sports Leadership Mentor and Fern Creek High School graduate
