Assistance League of San Luis Obispo County held its annual Fiesta fundraiser May 18. We can only be successful with the generosity and support of businesses and individuals in our community. Many items were donated to our live and silent auctions. Local wineries donated auction items and wines to be served at the dinner table.
We had many generous sponsors. Our major sponsors were: Cohl-Hosick Group of Stifel Nicolas, Founders Community Bank, Lynda and David Nath, Office Max of Arroyo Grande, San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors and Tolosa Press.
We are grateful to Founders Community Bank, Starbucks and Mindbody for their volunteers. We were honored to have Bob Wacker as our emcee and Kathy Sanders for her testimonial in support of Sue’s Stars.
All funds raised support our program Operation School Bell, which provides new school clothes to children in need from kindergarten through eighth grades. Students up to fifth grade are clothed at our Operation School Bell sites. This year, sixth graders were included in the retail shopping experience of our Sue’s Stars’ seventh and eighth graders. Since August, our all-volunteer organization has clothed more than 1,455 children in our county.
