Event Sponsors

Thank you to our sponsors below who understand that our programs directly benefit the thousands of students in Simi Valley that together, we are building futures by providing new resources and new opportunities. Working together we will continue to provide programs that enlighten, engage and inform students and enhance the educational environment for all K-12 students.


On behalf of the Gala Committee and entire Board of Directors we would like to extend a very special thank you to ALL of the students that graced us with results of their hard work. Our attendees of our Annual Celebration of Education Gala got to experience show stopping vocal acts from two elementary schools, all three middle schools, and all three High schools. If that wasn’t enough the Simi High School Strings Ensemble provided beautiful music during the Silent Auction.
