SEF Receives $28,000 Donation from the Los Angeles/San Gabriel Hilton Hotel

SEF would like to thank the Hilton for the $28,000 donation!  This gift marks the fourth annual significant gift to Foundation from the Hilton, with the foundation receiving $106,000 from the Hilton since 2010.

This is such a generous donation to SEF which will help support the Foundation’s “Fund the Gap” Campaign, currently underway. With a goal of raising $150,000 by June 30, 2014, “Fund the Gap” is targeted to help San Gabriel schools bridge the financial gap created by the state education budget shortfalls. The Campaign is earmarked to help fund K-3 music instruction, elementary visual arts instruction, performing art curriculum at Jefferson Middle School, college counseling support at Gabrielino High School, and many other vital programs and curriculum at all eight schools in the San Gabriel Unified School District (SGUSD) for the 2014-2015 academic year. All K-12 students in the District will benefit from the “Fund the Gap” Campaign.

With this donation, SEF is thrilled to once again honor the Los Angeles/San Gabriel Hilton as the Event Sponsor for SEF’s upcoming benefit gala, “SEF-apalooza!” The fourth annual fundraising event will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at the San Gabriel Country Club, and will feature fine dining, an incredible silent auction, spirited live auction, music and dancing. This donation also provides the Hilton with their continued partnership as a Platinum Sponsor in our SEF Business Alliance Program, which provides opportunity for local businesses to partner with SEF to support San Gabriel Unified Schools and promote their business.
