For 40 years, the Rim of the World Educational Foundation has supported programs offered by the Rim of the World Unified School District.
Through a variety of fundraising efforts, the Foundation raises the money to support AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), ROP/CTE (Regional Occupational Program/Career Technical Education classes) and Partnership with Schools grants.
This Sunday, folks will have a opportunity to be part of that educational support by attending the Luau at the Lake event, the Foundation’s spring gala.
There will be a Polynesian buffet as well as Polynesian dancers. Attendees will hear from students who have benefited from the AVID and ROP/CTE programs – their testimonies are always heartfelt and underscore the importance of these programs.
The event will be held at the UCLA Conference Center, 850 Willow Creek Road.
