On a warm sunny day in late May, we celebrated the Drew Silvern Dollars for Scholars Education Fund’s 11th annual Fiesta Celebration. More than 100 supporters attended to honor the life of Drew and raise funds for the scholarship created in his memory.
Volunteers, donors, board members, guests and scholarship recipients enjoyed a wonderful seafood buffet, refreshing homemade beverages, and delicious desserts. We were entertained by the music of Alicia Moran and Tomas Cardenas. Raffle prizes this year were top notch and included tickets to the Hollywood Bowl, fresh seafood home deliveries and restaurant gift certificates.
The gracious and appreciative speeches given by the Scholarship Recipients are always the most inspirational part of the Fiesta. It’s exciting to see these students mature and grow closer to earning a college degree.
We thank all the supporters who helped fund three new student scholarships, as well as scholarships for the 18 returning students this year. We thank all of our volunteers, supporters and donors, who continued hard work with dedication and love for this organization.
