2012 Invest in Success Celebrates Students
Students, business partners, sponsors, faculty, staff and friends enjoyed a beautiful afternoon reception at the Foundation's 2nd Annual Invest in Success event, held at Morgan Run Club and Resort in Rancho Santa Fe on September 22nd. The successful fundraiser provided opportunities to mix and mingle with scholarship recipients; a culinary journey around the globe, Zimbabwean Mbira music, provided by the Center for World Music; a brief formal program, and fantastic silent auction. Thanks to the generosity of event sponsors, donors and guests, the Miramar College Foundation raised over $30,000 from the Invest in Success event, and is able to continue to support student scholarships and campus projects that directly benefit San Diego Miramar College students.
