May 23rd was another great day for CRMSF! We had the honor and privilege of awarding 10 college partial scholarships to outstanding graduating seniors at Casa Roble High School in Orangevale!! At $1,500.00 each and included with the amounts awarded in the past (since 2013), CRMSF has now given almost $60,000.00 in college scholarships total! On behalf of the Board of Directors of CRMSF, I would like to thank all of you that support this great cause! Our non-profit has been embraced by the community - fundraising events and donations continue to grow and get better each year! We are a true non-profit in that 98% of the money that we receive goes into actual scholarships. Our board and all volunteers receive no pay and our administrative costs are low. We do it because we loved Crystal, she loved us, and we want to pass it on. Besides, it's FUN too!
The CASA Roble H.S. Senior Awards Night was held on the evening of May 24, 2017, at Sunrise Community Church in Fair Oaks, California. The Senior Class of 2017 and it's outstanding performers were honored for their academic and community achievements. Among those recognized were eight recipients of this year's Crytal Rodríguez Memorial Scholarship.
We wish them and all seniors in this year's graduating class the best of success for the future!
Crystal passed away in 2011, and we've been awarding scholarships annually since 2013. Every year, the number of scholarships that we've been able to award has grown as more and more people donate to our worthy cause and participate in our fundraising events. Thank you to our many contributors and participants!
