Trivia, beer, and philanthropy made for a great night at
United Way’s Young Leaders Society Brews & Brains fundraiser that
was SOLD OUT! More than 130 young
professionals came out in support of the United Way’s Kindergarten 2 College Savings
Program – K2C is part of United Way’s Square One Project
– our 20-year promise that will significantly increase the number
of students who graduate from high school prepared for success in
college and beyond. The Young Leaders Society is working with the
founders of Sacramento K2C, California Assemblymember Kevin
McCarty and SAFE Credit Union, to grow this program in our
region. We know that education is the key to breaking the cycle
of poverty in the Sacramento region.
Thanks to passionate YPs, we raised $5,160 for the
Kindergarten 2 College Savings Program! The money will
be used to fund college savings accounts for kindergarteners in
the Robla School District.
Thank you for supporting United
Way’s Young Leaders Society and for creating the
expectation, very early in a child’s life, that higher education
is both a desirable and – more importantly – an achievable goal.
The K2C program recognizes that early intervention and continued
parental involvement will dramatically increase the probability
that their children will realize the goal of higher education
