Thank You, Guilford Whitney Fund!
Thank you to the Guilford Whitney Fund at the San Diego Foundation for a decade of supporting our activities, services, and programs! In the past, the Fund has supported various programs at the Club, including our ceramics and aquatics programs. This year, the Guilford Whitney Fund's generous grant allowed our Polster Clubhouse to streamline and update its arts education storage.

This new cabinetry will allow the Polster Clubhouse to maximize its space and resources, especially while our Summer Adventure Camps program is in full swing. Thank you for inspiring the next generation of artists, dreamers, and doers. We look forward to a summer full of fun, friends, and creativity!
