to all of those who made our 2013 Have A Heart for Students Dinner & Auction a success!
THANKS A MILLION!
Since it's conception in 1997 the Have A Heart for Students Dinner & Auction has raised over a million dollars! And we want to say THANK YOU, because it is the generosity of our community members that got us here.
Have a Heart for Students Dinner and Auction is an annual fundraising event directly benefiting student scholarships at California State University Monterey Bay. Originally called the "Student Success Auction" in 1998, Have A Heart began as a brainchild of then Financial Aid Director Bonnie Brown who saw a need to create student scholarships on campus. The fundraiser started as an intimate breakfast in a private home, grew to a wine tasting with a small ticket price, and is now a four course seated meal with silent and LIVE auction including items and sponsorships by the finest Monterey and Salinas County Community members.
Thanks to dedicated community volunteers like Sue Antle, Leslie Taylor (original committee members), Shahin Anable and Marti Myszak, Have A Heart raised over $190,000 at last years event alone! We hope you'll join us for the 15th Annual Have A Heart for Students Dinner and Auction set to be held on Saturday February 23, 2013.
