Delta High School Fund Raiser Takes Place May 18
By Mary Altier
The Delta High School at Cabrillo College invites the public to attend their second annual fundraiser on Thursday, May 18, 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Cabrillo College’s lovely Sesnon House, 6500 Soquel Drive, Aptos. The event, titled “The Places We Will Go!” will benefit the school’s field trip fund and Delta’s program, “Exploring Life’s Options.”
Attendees will sip wine and Martinelli’s cider while enjoying appetizers created by Jodi Lombardo, chef/owner of Fresh Prep Kitchens.
They will get to hear comments from Delta students and keynote speaker, former Philadelphia Eagles football player and current Associate Vice President for Boys and Girls Clubs of Monterey, Ron Johnson, a passionate advocate for helping youth with their personal development. Excellent silent auction items will be available for bids as well as abundant raffle items. This fundraiser is free of charge, but donations will be gratefully accepted.
Delta, chartered by Santa Cruz City Schools, was founded in 1984 by community business leaders concerned about rising drop out rates. The charter school offers a variety of programs to its 135 students, including the opportunity to attend Cabrillo College classes concurrently while attending the high school.
Delta’s goals are to serve students who have not experienced success by giving them the tools they need to graduate high school, go on to higher education and positively contribute to society. In a recent survey, well over 3/4 of the students stated, “Delta is preparing me well for college and for my future career choice.”
Cathy Schlumbrecht, Delta Board member, grandmother of a junior, founder and co-chair of the annual Delta fundraiser says, “My grandson Cody loves Delta. Since he began there, he has become more confident, and his self-esteem is restored. He doesn’t get brutally bullied and is happy to contribute to the school community. We are both honored to be a part of Delta Charter High School and happy that Delta students consider it one big family. “
Dr. Angela Meeker, the school’s principal, welcomes the community to attend this event and learn more about the school from her amazing students while contributing to the Delta field trip fund.
Anyone who wants to donate to this event, or needs more information, may contact Cathy Schlumbrecht at: 831-295-6010 or firstname.lastname@example.org
