SEF Board Member Highlight: Kacie Bauzon


Kacie Bauzon, Communications Extraordinaire for the San Gabriel Educational Foundation

Join us as we honor our very own community champions…our SEF Board Members!

The SEF Board of Trustees is a dedicated group of individuals who strive to motivate and inspire stakeholder commitment. They focus on the significant work that must be done to ensure the mission of the foundation contributes positively to the lives of students in San Gabriel public schools.

Today we are highlighting SEF Board Member and Assistant Marketing & Communications Chair, Kacie Bauzon. Kacie is guided with purpose and defined outcomes visible through her efforts in the development of the monthly SEF eNewsletter designed to highlight the mission, fundraising goals, partners, engagement opportunities and accomplishments of our organization.

We are especially grateful for her efforts to build the SEF brand and awareness of the foundation and have been told that the newsletter provides rich and engaging content that helps the community feel connected to our schools and our students and could not be more proud. Additionally, Kacie enthusiastically serves as the liaison to the incredibly talented graphic design team at The CRP Group whose investment in the foundation single handedly is increasing visibility, effectiveness and efficiency for us.

With a clear purpose and a positive approach Kacie is creating (and part of) a very special winning team! Thank you Kacie for your efforts in generating consistent and compelling communication that is delivered to a community wide audience. Together we can all stand proudly in support of the work that we do and the difference that we make!

The San Gabriel Community Needs YOUR Support

We all know that supporting local businesses during this time means they will still be there when the lock-down is over and that makes the San Gabriel community a better place.

Below are a few ways you can support the SG Community today:

1) Shop local. Strengthen our community from within; make your daily, weekly or monthly purchases from a local SG business.

2) Purchase gift cards. Establishments like bars and restaurants who were forced to close will be suffering right now, with no patrons filling the barstools or booths. Consider buying gift cards for the businesses you visit most often to use later when they are officially up and running again.

3) Order takeout. Can’t wait until you can eat your favorite meals from your favorite local restaurants? Many are keeping things going by offering meals to go, and some are even providing free delivery. This is a great way to keep money going into the local community, and as a bonus, you still get to enjoy all your favorite dishes.

4) Increase the tip amount. Don’t forget, servers and delivery people will also be feeling the decrease in business, and many of them survive on the tips they’re now missing. If you’re ordering takeout or delivery, consider giving a little more than usual when tipping. The tip may not go right back to the restaurant, but it goes to the workers who can put it towards the essentials they may need during this slower time.

5) Have discretionary dollars to spare? Make a tax deductible online donation to SEF today… help us continue to support the over 5,000 students we serve

It is our honor to highlight a true business leader in the community, the San Gabriel Hilton Hotel! Through thoughtful management and creative thinking, the hotel remains open, with limited staff, and continue to serve the community through their To Go Menu and Essentials Menu options. Take a look at their menu below!
