We did it! On March 26th, close to 700 guests applauded a record number of scholarship winners – 49 to be exact – and for this, we THANK YOU! These youth along with the rest of our 3,330+ ITEP students are on their way to brighter futures because you allowed us to:
Raise more than $218,000 in donations and sponsorships
Support our ITEP programs through $9,606 in silent auction donations
Feature Gloria Davila (our 2015 Carol Rowen 180 Degree Award winner) and her cupcake business, which raised $3,240 to support future entrepreneurs
Showcase 82 cheerful centerpieces created by
San Pedro High School’s GE / SPEA Academy
Cheer on 30 of Banning High School’s MATCH Academy students who helped prep and serve the night’s family-style meals
Of course, we couldn’t do it without the dedication of our partners, specifically those who allow us to build and grow our programs:
Ports America, our 2015 Keeper of the Flame
Pilar Hoyos of Watson Land Company, Bill Stein Memorial Leadership Award Recipient
Matthew Brown of Cabrillo High School, our 2015 Educator of the Year
City of L.A. 15th District Councilman Joe Buscaino, our wonderful Master of Ceremonies and amazing ITEP supporter
Thank you for not only supporting another successful ITEP Scholarship Dinner, but allowing a future ITEP intern and college student to shine in the spotlight for years to come.
ITEP would like to send out a special thank you to all of our 2015 dinner sponsors. You can view the full sponsor list here.
