FOLSOM, Calif. – Visionary Integration Professionals (VIP) is pleased to be partnering with Junior Achievement of Sacramento, Inc. (JA) for its seventh annual Cheers for Children fundraiser at 6 p.m. on May 3.
This year’s event is expected to draw more than 150 local community leaders, and boasts a “Road to Morocco” theme. Guests will be treated to Moroccan-themed gourmet fare, fine wines, and silent and live auctions led by David Sobon of David Sobon Auctions at the Granite Bay home of VIP CEO and Founder Jonna Ward.
Proceeds from the evening 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.
“With help from partners like VIP, we can help prepare the most vulnerable youth in our community for successful adulthood,” said Susan Vicchio, president of Junior Achievement of Sacramento, Inc. “Our role is to inspire our young people and give them the tools they need to act on their dreams. We are teaching them what they need to know to get a job, save money, and function on their own.”
Ward and other VIP staff members have been dedicated to supporting Sacramento JA for many years. In addition to participating in other annual fundraising events, several employees also lead classroom instruction.
“Junior Achievement does an incredible job of providing local youth with the skills, confidence, and inspiration they need to not only achieve their own personal goals, but help create a more positive economic forecast for the Sacramento region,” Ward said. “We are honored to continue our support of one of the area’s most vital non-profit organizations.”
Last year, nearly 10,000 students received JA instruction in Sacramento-area classrooms. Visit the Junior Achievement website for more information on how to contribute, or click here to purchase tickets to Cheers for Children.
