Salutations fellow Aztecs, it brings me great pleasure to highlight Upsilon Kappa Delta Multicultural Sorority Inc. this week. Last week they hosted a Sweethearts Auction on Thursday, February 7th, 2013 from 5:30pm-9:30pm at Scripps Cottage. The purpose of this auction was to raise money for their philanthropy, Monarch School, which is a k-12 school that serves children impacted by homelessness. Monarch School provides an excellent academic and supportive environment in which any student in San Diego County who is impacted by homelessness will receive a rigorous education and grow personally to become a highly motivated, contributing member of society. The school is designed to help students achieve and surpass grade level work in a welcoming, accepting environment. The average student arrives at Monarch three years behind grade level, yet for every six months a student spends at Monarch, he or she will progress more than a year academically. The auction itself, raised money to help with much needed help the school needs. With budget cuts, schools and more importantly, children in need always suffer the most. The money raised ensures that students at The Monarch School are able to have school supplies they need and continue to thrive with their education regardless of the circumstances they may be in. With that being said I hope many of you came out and supported such a great cause. You will know that your contributions ensured the continuation of a child’s education.
