Annual Birthday Fundraiser!

Gralen’s birthday month is here again, and again we are inviting donations to our scholarship fund to be made in her honor!


Last year’s scholarship recipients, Callie and Hannah, who represented Santa Cruz in Sestri Levante, Italy, and hosted incoming Italian students in their homes. (Gralen’s nephew, Mitchell, also participated in this exchange as a68679581_10220985071643451_8717995265337851904_n special delegate, though not a scholarship recipient – the only opportunity to have a family member participate in the exchange honoring her memory.)

This year we selected two outstanding youth to represent Santa Cruz in Sestri Levante, Italy. (With the current travel situation, plans for the 2020 exchange are on pause, but as these delegates are juniors in high school they will have first option for next year in the event that this year’s exchange does need to be postponed.)
