Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson led the rallying chant, "Be nice! Work hard! Climb the mountain to college!" It was the end of year celebration for Reading Partners students, volunteers, staff and parents at Ethel Phillips Elementary School. The program completed its first year on campus and has become a central part of our club's Ethel's Village project.
A group of SIMS members visited the Women's Empowerment center on April 16 to deliver a $3,000 check from our club's Community Assistance Fund. SIMS raised the money earlier this year at the theatre night fundraiser held at Capital Stage. Roseana Herber voiced the feelings of many members, saying she is "proud to be a member of this fine club and doing good deeds to support women and children who are homeless!"
Sep 18, 2014Program: Fun-raising for all
Yes, it's true. Fundraising can be fun! This session will be a chance to break out of the box and dream up new ways to raise money for our grants and scholarships. Every member of the club is on the "fun-raising" committee, so let's get behind Carole Koblik, our committee chair, and get things going.
