Rising Stars Benefit Gala - 3rd Annual
CH2M HILL and Critigen, in conjunction with Schreder Planetarium and Whiskeytown Environmental School, are staging the third annual Rising Stars Gala on December 17, 2011, at the Market St. Atrium in downtown Redding. The gala will include live music, live and silent auctions, and gaming. We need your help to raise money for more children to participate in these programs. One-hundred percent of all donations will go toward helping our local children. Ninty percent of all donations and proceeds from the gala will go directly to scholarship funds for educational programs presented by Schreder Planetarium and Whiskeytown Environmental School. Ten percent of funds raised will be placed in the Clair Hill Scholarship fund at Shasta College. Our mission is to raise awareness of the sciences in the community and beyond to better prepare K-12 and college students for the future.
Budget shortfalls continue to cut funding to two of our most valued local science and engineering youth education programs, Schreder Planetarium and Whiskeytown Environmental School. Because of the lack of funding for scholarships, and the impact of the current economy on local families, many children are unable to attend these important programs that provide the motivation and inspiration needed to make decisions about continued education and careers. In the past two years our community rallied and generated over $50,000 at the Rising Stars Gala to support over 500 children who wish to attend camps at the planetarium and/or Whiskeytown Environmental School.
