March 2021 was an exciting time at the Foundation. Spring break brought a last-minute wave of Winner's Choice Raffle ticket purchases. For $20, purchases supported our IMPACT Chandler Scholarships, awarded to students who make a four-year commitment to maintain a 3.4 or greater GPA, 95% or better attendance and volunteer at least 100 hours in their community.
While social distancing measured canceled our plans to hold the Winner's Choice Raffle grand prize drawing at our CUSD Staff Rally, many of you joined us on Facebook Live for an exciting moment pulling the winning ticket! Colette D., a nurse from Chandler who purchased 3 tickets through Bogle Jr. High, was our grand prize winner. Collete has the choice of $27,000 off the MSRP of a new Toyota or $20,000 in cash. Congratulations Colette! This campaign would not be possible without the support of Toyota Financial Services and Big Two Toyota!
March also brought great news from Lisa at Subaru Superstore of Chandler! Subaru's Share the Love Campaign contributed over $20,000 to our Lifelong Learning Scholarship program and we notified over 20 CUSD staff members they had received a scholarship in support of their pursuit of an advanced degree or certification. Thank you Subaru Superstore for supporting this important program!
