Jason Sugarman and Sugarman Family Trust Continue to Raise Funds for Fullerton Technology Foundation
FULLERTON, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Over the past six years, Hilda and Jason Sugarman from the Fullerton
Technology Foundation have been able to raise close to $2 million
dollars to support technology in the Fullerton School District. Hilda
Sugarman created the Foundation in 2006 when she noticed that students
had a need for laptops, sound systems and other electronic devices.
Together with her son, they provided a start-up fund of $250,000 to make
sure the Foundation was off to a good start.
Aside from the generous donation, Jason Sugarman and his family are
continually organizing fund-raising events and bringing in supporters
and sponsors to the cause.
"What started out as $50 dinners and a speech has turned into the most
successful Elementary chool Fundraiser in Orange County," Jason
It was Jason Sugarman, as well as Chevron (News - Alert), who came up with the idea of
doing a wine auction and brought some of the most influential business
leaders in Orange County to contribute to the live auctions. In 2011,
the wine auction generated $85,000 of revenue for the charity. In 2012,
the "Toast to Learning" wine auction, held at Fullerton Arboretum,
raised approximated $125,000 due to Jason Sugarman and the Sugarman
family's efforts to contribute this school year.
Jason Sugarman and the Sugarman family continue to make every effort to
support the Fullerton Technology Foundation and provide technology to
the students and staff in the Fullerton School District. The 3rd annual
wine auction fundraiser event will be held June 1, 2013, at the
Fullerton Arboretum. For more information about the Foundation,
