Happy Holidays Everyone!
Tis the season to enjoy all of our holidays, family and friends! I personally wish all of you all the very best for the holidays and a Happy New Year to come.
As I approach the end of my SVEF Presidency, I would like to thank the hundreds of volunteers that help to make the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation a continuing success. We have such great support from our schools, students, families, service clubs and the community. I can’t thank you all enough for you efforts and devotion to the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation
This year we have raised $110,606 that will all go our schools. We raise money through our events and Dollar a Day campaign. See the breakdown below:
- Mt. Charlie Challenge – $29,608
- Business Partnership Program – $5,166
- Dollar A Day Campaign – $57,885
- Community Day – $14,988
- Miscellaneous donations – $2,959
We estimate that we will make over $10,000 on the tree lot (not included in the amount above).
I am please to announce that Allison Niday will be the new SVEF President for the New Year. Allison’s energy and commitment will keep SVEF a vital community organization.
