By Lookout Staff
January 31, 2017 -- Today is the last day to help the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation match a $25,000 gift from Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows/MSD Capital, Foundation officials said.
The proceeds will benefit students at all 16 Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District schools by funding programs –- from arts to STEM to wellness –- that "shape our future problem solvers, visionaries and global citizens," officials said.
“Schools are the hub of our community and we are proud to partner with the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation to help ensure that our community’s children have access to an excellent, enriched education.”
The Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows also will sponsor and host the Education Foundation’s Santa Monica-Malibu Wine Auction on April 30.
"Featuring outstanding wine and food tastings, and silent and live auctions of world-class wines and exceptional experiences, the Wine Auction brings parents and community members together to sip, savor and support students," event organizers said.
Foundation officials hope to match the $25,000 gift by the end of the day Tuesday.
“We are very excited to launch this match,” said Linda Greenberg, Executive Director of the Education Foundation. “We are grateful for the Fairmont Miramar’s philanthropic leadership in our community and know this match will inspire others to give as we finish our annual parent pledge drive on January 31.”
