SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The San Clemente Area Republican Women Federated (SCARWF) raised more than $1,500 toward its college scholarship program for local high school students during the group’s annual Fashion Show earlier this month.
The Fashion Show, which included a wine tasting and twilight dinner at Casa Romantica Cultural Center and Gardens on April 14, coincided with an online auction for the purpose of providing scholarships for deserving local high school students.
“Numerous individuals, businesses, and merchants from the local communities of San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point, Laguna Niguel, and Irvine donated generously to make this annual event a success,” SCARWF said in a press release.
Additionally, the group also recently raised more than $700 toward the Gary Sinise Foundation as part of the ongoing Caring for America Project that’s led by the California Republican Women Federated (CRWF).
The Gary Sinise Foundation’s motto is “We serve our nation by Honoring our Defenders-Veterans-First Responders-Their Families and Those in Need.” CRWF clubs have cumulatively raised more than $11,140 for the foundation since the project began in 2020, according to SCARWF.
Along with supporting the foundation, SCARWF supports military families stationed at Camp Pendleton through various fundraising events and group activities, such as the annual delivery of Thanksgiving dinners and a baby shower for military moms-to-be.
