One of the things I love most in our northern OC coastal communities is the parent support for the school and extracurricular activities.  Friends of Rossmoor is a parent-founded, nonprofit foundation that strives to raise funds for educational programs for all the children of Rossmoor Elementary School here in Rossmoor, California where both my children attend school.

 

Our team at I love OC Homes believes that education and leadership are both important for the improvement of today's society. Even though we live in some of the most beloved communities of Southern California, not all of our local schools have enough funding required to improve their schools.  Some schools also lack the ability to provide the necessary study materials and environment for proper education. This is why my family is especially grateful for the Friends of Rossmoor foundation.

 

Friends of Rossmoor’s largest annual fundraiser is Knightlife and will take place on Saturday, March 23rd from 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at Navy Golf Course in Cypress. This year’s extravaganza includes dinner, music, as well as silent and live auctions. 

 

The purpose of Friends of Rossmoor is to support the enrichment of the educational program for all the children of Rossmoor Schools. This is accomplished by raising funds for staff and supplies needed to run programs, for educational development of personnel, and for purchasing the equipment needed to run the educational programs.

 

The STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) lab at Rossmoor Elementary is fully funded and supported by the Friends of Rossmoor parent group. The Art Program and necessary supplies are also funded by donations and fundraisers. Friends of Rossmoor also supports the School Site House Program used to enhance community and team building. This year, I am honored to not only attend the event but volunteer my time to capture the evening behind my lens. If you or someone you know want to get involved and support Friends of Rossmoor or the fundraiser you can learn more about sponsorship packages and donations HERE.
