Atascadero

A check in the amount of $62,500 was presented to the Atascadero Lighthouse program from the Atascadero Kiwanis Club.

Lighthouse was created and is supported through the Atascadero Greyhound Foundation in partnership with Atascadero Unified School District, the city of Atascadero and SLO County Drug and Alcohol Services.

The money was raised by the Kiwanis Club’s eighth annual winemaker’s dinner held in June. The Kiwanis donation will help underwrite L.A.M.P. which is the Lighthouse Atascadero Mentor Program.
