FULLERTON, CA, January 18, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The Fullerton Technology Foundation is proud to announce the third annual wine auction fundraiser event on June 1st, 2013 at the Fullerton Arboretum. The fundraiser will support technology for the Fullerton School District, providing electronic devices such as laptops, digital cameras, iPads, digital microscopes, sound systems and interactive boards.
Thanks to the support and generosity of the Sugarman Family Trust, the Foundation has raised close to $2 million dollars since they began six years ago. Both Hilda Sugarman (President of the Foundation) and her son Jason, provided start-up funds of $250,000 to ensure the Foundation get off on a good start.
Jason Sugarman and Chevron came up with the idea for the wine auction and brought in some of the most influential business leaders in Orange County to contribute to the live auctions.
"Jason personally gets amazing live auction items donated and brings amazing guests that are supportive and generous," President Hilda Sugarman states.
In 2011, the wine auction generated $85,000 of revenue for the charity. "Toast to Learning" wine auction in 2012, held at the Fullerton Arborteum, raised approximately $125,000 due to Jason Sugarman and the Sugarman family's efforts to contribute to the school year.
"Jason is exemplary - people should be doing what he is doing," said Hilda Sugarman. "He is an example of someone who realizes the needs in public education and is generous to support those schools that got him where he is today." Mrs. Sugarman added, "Not enough people give back to their schools."
To this day, Jason Sugarman and the Sugarman family make every effort to support the Fullerton Technology Foundation. For more information about the Foundation, including how to become a donor and for event listings, please visit www.fulltech.org
