Taste of EastLake / January 23, 2015
The EastLake Educational Foundation (EEF) is excited to announce their newest fundraiser, The Taste of EastLake, which will take place Friday, January 23rd (6pm – 9pm) at The Venue at EastLake in the Design District. Guests will enjoy fantastic food and drinks from local restaurants, wineries, breweries, and spirit purveyors. Also, there will be live music and a fabulous live/silent auction. It will be a night to remember with many of Chula Vista’s local leaders, business owners and educators.
“The Taste of EastLake is such an important night to raise funds for the EEF, we hope to see the EastLake Community out in a big way.,” says EEF Executive Director, Nicole Graichen. “Technological advancements are rapid and ever changing, and without the special funding by the EEF, our local schools and children could not keep pace with these changes. For nearly 20 years the EEF has been thrilled to bridge the gap to keep our children up to speed with today’s technology.”
Each year the EEF works diligently to raise as much money as possible to support technology at each of our six local public schools: EastLake High, EastLake Middle, Arroyo Vista Charter, EastLake Elementary, Olympic View and Salt Creek Elementary. Since 1995 the EEF has given more than 1.7 million dollars, on average $120,000 per year, to each school to support their technology needs as they see best. Some of the amazing things that are funded each year include: new computer labs, technology teacher salaries, online educational curriculum, online programs, new printers, smart boards, and laptops just to name a few. Technology is vital in the classroom today. The EEF is here to help with the funding gap so that our children can have the best possible education and have access to these important technological tools that will help prepare them for their future.
The EEF would like to thank their generous Taste of EastLake sponsors including: The Adrian and Betsy Gonzalez Foundation, The Venue at EastLake, US Bank, Barbara Legg-Realtor/Manolo Realty, A&S Flooring, Baldwin & Sons, Dalia Photo Studios and Edgar Foto.
