IN THE COMMUNITY

Our Involvement in the Community

SMCF board members enjoy attending and participating in Sierra Madre events and festivals.

Grant Recipient Update

Sierra Madre Elementary School Farm to Table

SMCF provided a grant to help SME expand it's Farm to Table program to 10 additional garden beds.  The students built the garden beds and planted seeds of carrots, lettuce, and beans before the winter break that are now sprouting. 

2023 Winter Festival

The SMCF board members had a blast discussing "who is the Sierra Madre Community Foundation and what exactly do you do? during this year's Winter Festival.  It was a great event in which we were able to meet many new people!

2023 Firecracker Fun Run

 

Our third annual Firecracker Fun Run was a huge success. It was our largest turnout yet with over 200 registered runners! Special thanks to our sponsor Trader Joe's for the granola bars, Skylah Murray for singing our national athem, and to our MC, Fred Thomas for getting the party started. We hope you will join us next year as we run/walk to celebrate our freedom! Thank you for supporting the Sierra Madre Community Foundation!”

2023 Whiskey & Wine Event

This year's Sierra Madre Community Foundation's Whiskey & Wine Event was a great success with great weather.  Over 200 people attended which included over 24 of the finest whiskeys, 12 selections of fine wine, and delicious food.  With the huge turnout, we were able to raise a record of over $18,000.  This money will be used to support grants for local activities, events, and programs. Special shout out to the Young Family for graciously opening their home, the San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District, and Michael Osterman for their generous sponsorship of the event.
