Taste the Sky 2015


Ally Edelmann and Emily Hopkins, 2015 United Way of NNM Youth Team Co-Chairs

My name is Ally Edelmann, one of the Los Alamos United Way Youth Team co-chairs for 2015.
Our Youth Team is held one of our best events, “Taste the Sky” on, Sunday, Sept. 27 on the tarmac at Los Alamos County Airport.
In case you did not know before, United Way is a nonprofit organization that contributes to the Community Action Fund and helps to support local organizations that benefit our public. For example, the past two years, the Youth Team has funded the Los Alamos High School Link Crew, which is a peer-to-peer mentoring program that helps to create a sense of community and fellowship between the upper and lower classes.
Without your help, we would not be able to start programs like Link Crew in our schools or make other positive impacts in our town for youth. Support all of the good that United Way Youth Team does by enjoying the unique community dining events we offer in the Fall!
Our very first event of the year, Dinner Over Diamond, was a huge success and we were pleased to see the amount of people involved in helping the community of youth.  We are thrilled to present these events to you, and our producers will give you more information on their individual events. Thank you for all of your support in the Youth Team’s efforts to support Los Alamos.

Akane Dunn, Taste the Sky Producer

Hello, my name is Akane Dunn and I am part of the United Way Youth Team of Northern New Mexico as well as the project manager for Taste the Sky. I am very excited to be able to present this event to the community.
Taste the Sky was wonderful opportunity for the community to enjoy a unique dining experience, travel around the world in 80 minutes, and to savor flavors from around the world as well as being able to see a display of airplanes, helicopters, and hot air balloons. We were lucky to have Secret City Kitchen cater some amazing food.
Be sure to keep a look out for the upcoming United Way Youth Team events in the Fall.
