Appreciation for what we have and charity toward those less fortunate are big parts of what the holiday season is all about. With that in mind, Spectrum Director John Fleskes has something special now taking place:
Flesk Fundraiser for Stoke Out Santa Cruz!
"Just after Thanksgiving I will be going live with a series of auctions (run on Ebay) that will benefit an amazing local youth center here in Santa Cruz, California. This is going to provide shoes, sweatshirts, food, and hope to local kids in need. The amazing people at #Santacruzhope are making this happen and I'm proud to play a small part in the fundraising efforts.
"I'll be making available 13 books with original drawings inside by some of the top names in our field: 100% of the proceeds will go to the youth center. This fundraiser is very personal to me: life was challenging growing up and I can relate to these young people. It's my goal to raise as much as possible to make things just a little bit better for these kids and to let them know, regardless of circumstances, there are good people that care. Check out the link to see how you can donate directly--even $1 helps! http://www.santacruzhope.com/stoke-out/
