Five for the Future - A Great Success!

 

AEF Board members were able to visit every school site this year!  Thank you so much to the principals and staff who gave of their precious meeting time for our presentations.  As a result, contributors to our most successful fundraising effort have increased to 376 participants!  All schools exceeded our goal of 5 new participants per site!  La Granada, Orrenmaa, RMK, Arizona, Villegas, Wells, and Hillcrest all exceeded 50% participation.  Alvord HS, with 100% participation, will receive $100.  The board cannot explain how important this predictable source of revenue is to our support of events like the Spelling Bee and Science Festival, grant allocations, and scholarships. All the money received goes directly back to OUR KIDS in Alvord. Thank you, Thank you.

5th Annual Citrus Classic Bicycle Ride

 

 

citrus_classic_flyer_2014Beautiful weather enhanced the 5th Citrus Classic Bike Ride which was held on October 12th, 2014. This great event was hosted at the Riverside Plaza and attracted vendors, non-profits, volunteer groups, schools, companies, and others.  The ride began 5 years ago as the project for the mayor’s “Leadership Class.”  Now the ride is co-sponsored by the enrichment foundations for Alvord USD and Riverside USD. The Citrus Classic has become a fall tradition for Inland Empire bicyclists of all ages.  Courses range from the short “family” course to the 100 mile course for more serious riders.  The many hours of volunteer work paid off in a well-run event.  Riders from around the southland extolled the merits of the ride from the overall organization to the quality of the courses available to ride.

 

While all the numbers are still yet to be tabulated the success of the ride is unmistakable, judging by the number of participants and all the positive comments made by the riders. All of the proceeds go to Alvord Educational Foundation (AEF) and Riverside Educational Enrichment Foundation (REEF) for the work they do in their respective Districts.


At AEF, the focus has been on providing funding not available due to budget cuts and a lack of revenue. AEF sponsors the annual Spelling Bee, Science Festival and provides classroom enrichment grants and scholarships for students going on to the College or University of their choice.
