5TH ANNUAL – REACH FOR THE STARS Event

October 7, 2017 – 5:00 PM-9:00PM

August 1, 2017

Dear Friend,

We are honored to ask you to play a special role in what will be a truly important event benefiting at-risk students in South-Central Los Angeles. I am referring to the Success Through Education Program’s (STEP) 5th Annual Reach for the Stars event.

On October 7, 2017, STEP will host an event on the Sony Lot at 5:00 p.m. and then sit back, relax, and imagine warm tropical breezes as we transport you to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands for an evening in paradise. We look forward to working together with our donors and friends to make this year’s event the best one ever — complete with live music, Hawaiian Dancers, delicious food and special guests — at which we will honor our friend and champion, Elizabeth O’Neil, Executive Director of Variety Children’s Charity So Cal. We are recognizing Elizabeth for her years of tireless dedication to improving the lives of children in crisis and because of her long-standing dedication and commitment to supporting programs and initiatives that help under served inner-city children receive a quality education and the resources they need to grow into productive, caring adults. This includes her longtime support and involvement with STEP, which, since 2000, has awarded nearly $1,000,000 in scholarships to hundreds of inner city students seeking to improve their lives through a quality education. Elizabeth embodies the values and spirit of what STEP strives to accomplish for its scholarship recipients.

In short — Elizabeth O’Neil makes it possible for STEP students to Reach for the Stars.

We hope you will join us in honoring Elizabeth and support STEP by being a sponsor for our event. Our main fundraiser of the year, all proceeds from Reach for the Stars will directly support STEP’s scholarship program, which awards tuition assistance for at-risk students to attend high-performing private schools, thereby providing them, through education, a pathway out of poverty.

With your support we can continue to provide these life-changing opportunities not otherwise available to these deserving children. Your involvement will guarantee the event’s success, and serve as an important testament to our children working to elevate their lives through education.

On behalf of our STEP scholars and their families, we hope you will consider becoming a sponsor of our event. We have provided sponsorship information below, but if you have any questions, please contact Susan Armendariz at (818) 968-8307 or stepwithusla@gmail.com.

All my best,
Ron Crimins,
Founder, Success Through Education Program (STEP)
