‘Flying Kites’ open house this Saturday

An open house event for the non-profit Flying Kites program will be held this Saturday, May 8, from 9 a.m. to noon at 53 Conanicus Ave. in Jamestown.

Brothers Jared and Joshua Furtado will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro this June to raise money for the organization. The open house is an opportunity for all island residents to learn more about the organization and the work it does.

Volunteers and one of the Flying Kites founders will be on hand to answer questions during the event. Donations will also be accepted toward the brothers’ $10,000 fundraising goal. All money donated will go directly to supporting children at the Flying Kites orphanage.

Coffee and pastries will be provided by “The Shack” at Dutch Harbor.
