Denny’s will donate 20 percent of the gross receipts, all tips and 100 percent of all donations that evening to the Camp RYLA Program.
Students from eight Maui high schools selected to return to the 2011 Camp RYLA as Assistant Facilitators and Camp Assistants will be the “Celebrity Servers.”
Camp RYLA, which is sponsored by the nine Rotary Clubs of Maui, is an intensive coed leadership training and development program, which is designed for 10th and 11th grade students from all Maui County public and private high schools.
Diners can support Maui’s future leaders through Project Compassion on Sunday, Oct. 24, from 4 to 9 p.m. at Denny’s in Kahului. Twenty percent of the night’s receipts go to the 2011 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Camp.
RYLA campers will experience a broad range of activities to encourage campers to think about leadership principles and how they can apply them in their lives. Adult Rotary Club facilitators and student Camp RYLA graduate Assistant Facilitators will guide the 72 campers through a variety of experiences, which include interactive games, physical activities and guided discussions on leadership topics relevant to teens.
The program will help empower and challenge the participants to be proactive in their school and community.
