San Diego, Calif. -- Barrio Logan College Institute (BLCI), a nonprofit dedicated to helping disadvantaged families prepare their children for college enrollment, raised over $50,000 at its annual fundraiser, Opportunity for Impact, for its education programs.
The event was held at the San Diego Central Library where BLCI honored donors hosted an auction and shared inspirational success stories with over 300 corporate and community leaders. Pedro Villegas, Director of Community Relations at San Diego Gas & Electric, served as the event’s Honorary Chair.
Opportunity for Impact owes its success to generous sponsors including San Diego Gas & Electric, Southwest Airlines and U.S. Bank. Organizations such as these continue to make it possible for BLCI and its students to prosper. The $450,000 raised by the fundraiser will directly support children who are currently in the BLCI program as well as enable future students to fulfill their aspirations of a higher education.
