WiSH Education Foundation Named Beneficiary
of Sierra Pelona Vintners’s Association Harvest Festival
The WiSH Education Foundation is thrilled to be named the beneficiary of the “A Toast to the Bountiful Harvest” on September 6, 2014.
The Harvest Festival is being held amid grapes on the vines at beautiful Reyes Winery, located in Agua Dulce. The event is open from 4-8 pm (3 pm entry for VIP ticketholders) and includes all food and drink as well as access to the artisan boutique. Grape stomping is available to anyone wishing to give that a try! Tickets are $65 in advance or $75 at the door for general admission and $90/$100 for the VIP tickets. Please visit www.sierrapelonavitners.com/events for tickets and further event details, vendor and sponsorship information.
All of the proceeds will benefit programs of the Wm. S. Hart Union High School District, which serves junior and senior high public schools in the Santa Clarita Valley. WiSH’s goal is to benefit as many of the nearly 23,000 students in the district as possible, supporting administration and staff by addressing their “WiSHlists” – items not provided for by tax dollars. To date, WiSH has disbursed nearly $90,000 in the two academic years it has been supporting the district. WiSH’s current funding focus is literacy, and every student has been positively impacted by the funding to those programs in all 16 Hart District schools.
WiSH encourages all Santa Clarita businesses to INVEST IN THEIR FUTURE EMPLOYEES! Please contact Executive Director Amy Daniels at WiSH@hartdistrict.org or 661-799-9474 for sponsorship information. For more information, see www.WiSHscv.org.
