IN THE COMMUNITY
Our Involvement in the Community
SMCF board members enjoy attending and participating in Sierra Madre events and festivals.
Playhouse's Young Audience Series
The Sierra Madre Community Foundation has awarded grants to the Sierra Madre Playhouse to support its Annual Theater for Young Audiences Series. The funds will help underwrite costs of its production for the Theater for Young Audiences Series. The Playhouse’s Theater for Young Audiences series serves the children of Sierra Madre by providing them with an opportunity to experience live theatre at the community’s historic cultural landmark.
Huck Finn Fishing Derby and Campout
Thanks in part to donations by the Sierra Madre Community foundation, local youth ages 3-15 again took part in the long standing Sierra Madre tradition of camping outdoors and fishing with family and friends. This tradition which began more than 40 years ago offers local youth and their families an outdoor fishing experience without having to travel far from home. For many of the youth this is their first time camping and catching a fish.
Funding of the Huck Finn Fishing Derby and Campout aligns with the Community Foundation's continuing interest to support civic improvement projects throughout the city.
