And that is a guiding principle of our Foundation – to educate and empower needy Polish children, through enrichment programs and life experiences. Currently, our PromiseKids are engaged in English language programs, music and art activities, healthy lifestyle workshops and cultural excursions, all provided by FCSR and its member companies.


Next year we hope to bring back one of our most successful endeavors: The FCSR International Student Exchange Program. This will provide a unique opportunity for our high school PromiseKids to travel to America, be immersed in the English language and share cultural bonds.


I would like to extend a personal invitation to all our Foundation friends and members to attend our 15th Anniversary Gala, meet our previous Exchange Scholars and support this very important program!


Sincerely,
Virginia Chasey,
FCSR President

TOP CHEF FINALISTS TRAVEL TO SZCZECIN

This is it! The last days before the final competition for the crown of “TOP LITTLE CHEF”. Tension and excitement is building as the finals are right around the corner!


To reward the 12 finalists for all their hard work over the past school year, and give them some last minute “hints”, KFC Restaurant, “Mic-Mag” invited our PromiseKid chefs to spend an afternoon having lunch and touring “behind the scenes” in the KFC kitchen. They were treated like VIPS by the KFC staff!


After lunch and the tour, they had a chance to relax at the theater where they watched "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales". All agreed – it was a great day!!

On June 6, the 12 finalists will take part in the final competition for the "Top Little Chef"! Remember, these kids have been participating in our “Healthy Lifestyle” workshops all school year. This is their chance to show what they have learned about preparing healthy meals. They will have all the food products they worked with during the program available to them, but now they will have to create an original meal before the judges!! The pressure is on…


We'd like to thank KFC Szczecin "Mic-Mag" Restaurant, one of the first KFC restaurants in Poland. Special thanks to GM Katarzyna Lemek, GM Agnieszka Pisarek and Vice GM, Piotr Jemilianowicz of the restaurant for taking care of the tour.

One of our gala sponsors and FCSR members, EuropaProperty GM Craig Smith will be hosting the 5th annual CEE Manufacturing Excellence & Industrial Property Awards on June 22 at the Intercontinental Hotel Warsaw.
