This past weekend the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation partnered with Chef Michael Shafer, Depot Restaurant, in a fun-filled event to benefit the Junior Leadership Torrance Program. This program is mirrored after the Chamber’s Leadership Torrance program and will have participants from each of the four Torrance Unified School District High Schools, as well as Ambassador High School.
Summer Fest and the Junior Leadership Torrance programs have been made possible by the generous support of sponsors including Los Angeles County Supervisor, Fourth District, Janice Hahn, Torrance Refining Company, Southern California Edison, UFC Gym Torrance & the Daily Breeze. The TACC Foundation is deeply grateful for the contributions that will allow us to achieve great results in preparing local youth to position themselves as leaders in our community.
Heartfelt appreciation is also extended to Khryste Griswold, event coordinator, Jennifer Olvera, Vice Chairman of the Foundation and volunteers; Candy Messer, Leslie Cortez, Ellenmary Michel, Claudine Garcia, Jack Walser, Melissa Yamada, Joana Brown and Nancy Lesney. Additionally, the TACC Foundation would be remiss in not acknowledging the TACC members and community-at-large who donated their products and services to the silent auction. From private airplane rides to Catalina Island to gift cards to just about every dining location in the South Bay; thank you all for your kindness and generosity.
Stay tuned for more information and continued updates as the TACC Foundation gears up for the launch of this Fall’s Jr. Leadership Torrance program.
