Jason Sugarman and Sugarman Family Trust Raise $2 Million for Fullerton Technology Foundation

The wine auction fundraising event will be held at the Fullerton Arboretum on June 1st, 2013.

Fullerton, CA, January 17, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Since 2006, the Sugarman Family Trust has continued to make every effort to support the Fullerton Technology Foundation and provide technology to the students and staff in the Fullerton School District. Hilda Sugarman (President of the Foundation) saw the need for technology for both teachers and students and together with her son, Jason, created the Foundation. The Sugarman Family Trust provided start-up funds of $250,000 to ensure that the Foundation would get off to a good start.

Over the last six years, electronic devices such as laptops, iPads, digital microscopes, digital cameras, sound systems and interactive boards have been provided for the students and teachers. As technology evolves, so the Foundation works with the school boards each year to assess the technology needs—most schools currently use the iPad 3.

Besides the generous $250,000 donation by the Sugarman Family Trust to found the Fullerton Technology Foundation, Jason Sugarman and his family continually organize fund-raising events and bring in supporters and sponsors to the cause.

“What started out as $50 dinners and a speech, has turned into the most successful Elementary School Fundraiser in Orange County,” Jason Sugarman stated.

Chevron, along with Jason Sugarman, came up with the idea for the wine auction, and took action by bringing in influential business leaders in Orange Country to contribute to the live auctions. The President of the Foundation, Hilda Sugarman, stated, “Jason personally gets amazing live auction items donated and brings amazing guests that are supportive and generous.”

The 3rd annual wine auction fundraiser event will be held June 1, 2013, at the Fullerton Arboretum.
