Legacy attends "Morning Glory Brunch"
Last updated 5/8/2008 at Noon
On Oprah Winfrey’s “The Big Give,” a very worthy charitable organization was to be chosen from five nonprofits, to receive $10,000 in matching grants. St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center (SMSC), a remarkable facility that assists approximately 200 developmentally disabled adults, was voted number one, and was announced as the winner. St. Madeleine’s assists these adults in living fulfilling, productive lives by teaching them computer skills, art, gardening, sports, cooking, and helping them find jobs to support themselves and become independent.
Once a year, St. Madeleine has a fund raiser called the “Morning Glory Brunch” where guests can view their beautiful gardens, see their artwork, enjoy a buffet meal and music, and visit with the students.
Legacy Endowment - The Community Foundation had a donor that counted St. Madeleine’s close to their hearts. The Deranian family left an endowment to support SMSC for generations to come. Like-minded people who have a heart for a charity can call Legacy at (760) 728-3304 to talk about the various funds that will allow them to have a legacy in their name.
