Angel Society donates to student efforts, fireworks show

FALLBROOK – A total of $12,900 in funds was approved to be distributed to worthy causes by the Angel Society of Fallbrook at its board of directors meeting in January.

The Fallbrook Music Society led the list of Angel Society donation recipients with $5,000 to help underwrite the cost of its Youth Music Education Program. The program, which provides a series of classical music concerts for students in grades seven- through-twelve, aims to provide an integrated and progressive music education.

REINS therapeutic horsemanship program for disabled adults and children was awarded $4,000 to help fund its scholarship program. There is often a long waiting list of students, who enroll in the program with the goal of eventually learning to ride without assistance.

A total of $2,000 in donations was approved for the Fallbrook Beautification Alliance’s (FBA) “Help Save Our July Fireworks Celebration” fundraiser. The group recently lost its sponsor for the popular fireworks show and is trying to raise enough money from the community to cover the expense. The FBA diligently works to beautify Fallbrook and proceeds from the July 4th event enable that effort.

“It would be a shame to lose a community celebration of the fourth of July,” said Marilyn Miller, philanthropy chair of the Angel Society. “It is one of the things that make our community unique.”

Donations of $500 were given to both MAAC Project Head Start, a day care center serving upwards of 50 children, and to Sullivan Middle School, to help support its music department. More than 80 students are enrolled in its after school band, which needs additional monies to help pay for music, instrument repairs and competition fees.

Donations of $300 each were also awarded to the Fallbrook Union High School Boys’ Soccer Boosters and Girls’ Rugby Club, as well as to Eagle Scout candidate Jonathan Smith of Troop 739, who plans to make repairs and install new items for the physically challenged at REINS.
