Employees working in the Library - Learning and Technology Resources division have pooled their money and time to create a basket for some future Cuyamaca College graduate. This basket will be auctioned off, along with a number of other goodies, at the next Cuyamaca Foundation Dinner Dance, scheduled for Saturday, May 17, at 5:30 p.m. Included in the basket are children's DVDs, a CD, educational toys, a handmade baby blanket, a pillow, a Barnes and Noble gift card, and a "college fund" piggy bank.
The annual Cuyamaca College Foundation Dinner Dance is one of the biggest fundraisers for the college. Last year the Foundation raised over $120,000. Their mission is "To provide continuous support and resources to Cuyamaca College," and they continue to award scholarships, fund capital improvements (not provided by the state), as well as fund special projcts.
There are many ways to donate to the Cuyamaca College Foundation. For more information, check out their website at http://www.cuyamaca.edu/foundation/default.asp.
