April 19, 2012 - PRLog -- Saint Petersburg, FL--Pathfinder Outdoor Education ( is focused on providing outdoor adventure experiences to Florida youth; today Bright House Networks ( stepped in to help with the cause! Through their Airtime Grant Program, Bright House will air PSAs in support of Pathfinder’s youth enrichment programs.

“We are very excited to have the support of an organization like Bright House Networks,” explains Tony Ceresoli, Sr.—Executive Director for Pathfinder. “Bringing purpose and enrichment into the lives of youth is our top priority; this partnership with Bright House will enable us to touch more young lives.”

Pathfinder is currently 68% of the way toward their 2012 Annual Support Campaign goal of $10,000 to help youth in our communities. The money raised will be used for school group and summer camp scholarships. Among other groups, Booker Middle School in Sarasota and Academy Prep in Saint Petersburg will be recipients of these scholarships.

“Sometimes it can be a struggle to raise funds--even for such a worthy cause,” says Kari Fletcher, Marketing & Fund Development Director at Pathfinder. “Then media giant Bright House steps up to offer assistance! We’re very grateful for their airtime grant program. We want to see how many more lives we can impact this year because of this assistance!”

Bright House also provided cable gift certificates to be auctioned at a tree Climb-A-Thon—a first-time fundraising event which concludes the 2012 Annual Support Campaign on May 5th. The event will be held at Pathfinder’s office location in Saint Petersburg from 10am-3pm.

“Canopy tree climbing is Pathfinder’s signature event, so a tree climb-a-thon is a fitting close for our fundraising effort” continues Ms. Fletcher, “We hope the press and the community will come out to celebrate with us on May 5th.”

The event will feature live music by Urban Gypsies of Florida, played from the treetop, as well as crafts, food, tree climbing, and, of course, the ability to bid on those cable gift certificates! 100% of the campaign proceeds will be used to fund programs that promote youth development.
