55th Annual 5th Quarter
The Garfield Alumni Foundation is moving the 55th Annual 5th Quarter Dance and Fundraiser to Steven’s Steak and Seafood House 5332 Stevens Pl., Commerce California, Friday October 27, 2017 from 7:00PM -1:30 AM. Doors will open at 6:30 PM and food will be served between 7:00 -8:00 PM
The event, the largest fundraiser of the year for the nonprofit volunteer organization, is expected to increase the number of college scholarships awarded to Garfield High seniors.
The need for scholarships continues to increase as over 91% of the school’s students are being accepted to colleges and universities, while the school’s graduation rate has also increased to 94%. This is believed to be one of the highest in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
Each year as upcoming events are planned, maximizing the support for students, while providing enjoyable and memorable functions for attendees is taken under serious consideration.
GAF has determined that staging the 5th Quarter at Steven’s Steakhouse will yield greater proceeds and more scholarships for the graduating class of 2018. This also includes additional funds for other student needs that may arise.
The 2017, 5th Quarter results will be closely evaluated and considered by the board of directors when planning begins for next year.
We look forward to your continued support and participation for our fundraising efforts as we work hard to assist Garfield students in achieving their goals and dreams.
Tickets are now available for purchase for $35.00 each ($15.00 with current ELA Classic ticket stub).
