Friends, we want to invite you an event we are involved with that’s coming up on October 16th. You may not know anything about Dewey Elementary School even though you may drive by it every day. Dewey is located in front of the Navy’s Gateway Housing complex on Rosecrans. We have five elementary schools here on the peninsula and most have foundations that raise funds for educational programs, technologies and events. One of the schools raised over $230,000 just last year. Little Dewey raised $6,000 through their Parent Teacher Organization. These young military families are our neighbors and we’d like to help then do better. Here’s the story on the fundraising party we’re planning. Baja Chefs on the Point experience the best Baja cuisine, prepared by the top Baja and San Diego chefs who created it. Their marvelous Baja dishes will be served up with the elegant, French Rhone Valley inspired wines from Baja’s booming Valle de Guadalupe. This top rate culinary event will benefit Dewey Elementary School students. Nearly 75% of Dewey students qualify for the free or reduced lunch program. They are primarily the children of young E-6 and below military parents, who being in the lower pay grades lack extra money for education. Additionally, the Dewey student mix includes more special needs students since the military transfers the parents of these students to San Diego, near Navy Hospital. All funds raised from your support of this event will go toward the purchase of equipment for the new Dewey STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) program.
