VIP CEO Hosts “Old Hollywood” Fundraiser for Junior Achievement of Sacramento

FOLSOM, CA  Visionary Integration Professionals (VIP), a leading provider of technology solutions that drive enterprise performance, has partnered with Junior Achievement of Sacramento, Inc. (JA) for its ninth annual Cheers for Children fundraiser at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 19.


This year’s event is expected to draw 200 of the area’s most influential leaders, and boasts an “Old Hollywood” theme. Guests will enjoy delicious food, fancy cocktails, and a fabulous live auction under the stars at the private Granite Bay residence of Jonna Ward, CEO of VIP.


Proceeds from the event will help fund JA’s financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship programs, which are delivered to students in grades K-12 by both corporate and community volunteers.


“Junior Achievement helps develop the bright minds of Sacramento’s youth, giving them the skills, support, and confidence needed to become the entrepreneurs and business leaders of tomorrow,” Ward said. “We are honored to continue our support of JA and invest in the future economic health of Sacramento.”


This will be the eighth consecutive year that Ward has hosted the Cheers for Children fundraiser at her home. Last year’s event netted $50,000 for JA’s programs.


“JA of Sacramento is entirely privately funded,” said Natalie Franks, director of community relations for Junior Achievement of Sacramento, Inc. “Cheers for Children is a critical part of our funding for the year, and all proceeds raised during the event allow us to provide economic empowerment programs to local students in Title 1 schools at no cost.  We could not be more appreciative of Jonna’s continued support in hosting this event.”


Last year, more than 12,500 students received JA instruction in Sacramento-area classrooms. Click here to purchase tickets to Cheers for Children 2015, or visit the JA website for more information on how to contribute to this critical non-profit organization.
