We recently had our first spring fundraiser at Ricardo’s Place in San Juan Capistrano. Ricardo Beas, the owner of Ricardo’s Place, has been a supporter of the Breakthrough organization for quite some time. The idea of helping students in need and eliminating the achievement gap that affects our students are very important to him and he generously gives to many other local organizations as well.
Ricardo has been donating food for the past few years for the Late Night Breakthrough event where students and teachers spend one final evening together on the last day of summer. In the end, 24 families came out to Ricardo’s over the five day span of our spring fundraiser. 25% of each bill was given to Breakthrough to help our students as they strive to attend a four year college.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support us for the spring fundraiser and a huge thank you to Ricardo Beas and his staff for organizing the fundraiser and for supporting our mission!
