LADERA RANCH, CA – The Ladera Ranch Education Foundation (LREF), created to raise funds for all of the public schools serving Ladera Ranch, including Chaparral, Ladera Ranch, and Oso Grande Elementary Schools; Ladera Ranch Middle School; and Tesoro and San Juan Hills High Schools, welcome one and all to attend this year’s marquee event, The LREF Gala.
The LREF Gala is the Ladera Ranch Education Foundation’s (LREF) signature fundraising event. The tenth annual Gala will be held at Tijeras Creek Golf Club in Rancho Santa Margarita on May 3, 2014. The Gala event features dinner, live music, dancing and incredible silent auction items. The LREF Gala is organized and planned by an all-volunteer committee and is LREF’s largest fundraiser of each year.
LREF has raised and funded over $309,000 for its school grant program and has processed over $2m in directed grants. The purpose of LREF’S grant program is to support the public schools that serve the community of Ladera Ranch and to provide funds to enrich the learning environment, motivate students, and enhance instructional effectiveness. Grants are awarded on an annual basis and the success of LREF fund raising events directly impacts the amount of funds that are awarded to schools each year. These grants fund various curriculum areas including reading, math, social studies and music. You can get more information about our grant program at our main LREF website: http://www.LREFonline.org.
