Congratulations Blake!!

Congratulations to Blake Cardoza for raising $608 for The First Tee of Monterey County's Restoration Project!! 

Blake is working on a project over the school year and has a goal of raising over $500.  Blake has come up with the entire plan for the project including what will be restored on campus, what materials he will need, identifying who will help, planning and carrying out the fundraisers to earn the money needed, and carry out the final restoration.   The bake sale Blake had over the weekend was the first of 2-3 planned fundraisers to cover the cost of the project to be completed in April/May. 

If you see him on campus, congratulate him for his dedication to his goal!  Way to go Blake!!
