That' what High Speed Universities is all about, to further the education of students.

We wanted to thank everyone who came out to support us on Saturday night. We raised just overRead More $1,300 dollars and that is the single largest night ever in the history of the Franklin Frightfest. We hope that those of you who could not make on Saturday will stop by tonight between 6:30 and 9:00. Thanks again.

The FIESTA! is ready to roll at noon on Sunday, October 16. This is a fun event to raise money forRead More the Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos. The FIESTA! includes an authentic Mexican buffet (thanks to the generosity of local restaurants and other contributors), song and dance performances by the Pequenos, and a touching video relaying the mission of the NPH homes. Raffle tickets (only $2 each!) for several terrific prizes - again, thanks to the generosity of several local donors - will be sold at the FIESTA! All are welcome - there are a limited number of $10 tickets for the buffet that will be sold at the door.
