Donegan Burns Foundation President, Bettye Burns makes presentation to Dr. Erin English, School Principal
Foothill Oak Elementary School located in Vista, CA was awarded $25,000 towards using the Fast Forward Reading Intervention Program in an after-school program starting in the fall of 2013. This after-school program will focus on incoming second and third graders who, despite efforts during school and at home, do not progress in the area of reading. Thank you to Bettye Burns and the Donegan Foundation for their generosity and commitment to providing support that will ensure children attain the skills they need to become literate.

Boys & Girls Clubs of North County’s Annual Auction and Dinner Gala was held on Saturday, April 27 at Pala Resort Spa and Casino with presenting sponsor Donegan-Burns Foundation. The gala was well attended by 225 guests from the Fallbrook community. The “New York New York” themed event raised over $100,000 in support of Club programs and the 1,500 youth members.
“We are so appreciative of such a supportive community,” said Allison Barclay, Chief Professional Officer of the Boys & Girls Club. “It was amazing to see all of the sponsors and community members willing to contribute to improve the lives of the children in Fallbrook. The Boys & Girls Club is a vital program and we certainly could not provide life changing programs to our members without such dedicated donors.”
