Community individuals, friends, families and organizations came together for a night of glamor, music and fun. TOFA Ambassadors joined in the program through song and cultural performance.
Xai and Jason Leggit were recognized for organizing donations to take to the Camp Fire victims. We are pleased that members of our communities are taking action to assist those in need.

Tuition may be on the rise, but that doesn't mean college is off the table for you or a member of your family. No one should be priced out of higher education. Our state Cal Grant and Middle Class Scholarship programs are among the nation's strongest efforts to help families pay for college tuition.
As Chair of the Assembly Budget Subcommittee on Education Finance, I've been working for several years to bolster these programs and help all of our state's students achieve their academic goals.
Cal Grants are available to California resident students who wish to attend two-or-four year colleges or are pursuing technical education. The Middle Class Scholarship provides undergraduate students with family incomes and assets up to $171,000 a scholarship to attend UC or CSU campuses.
Beginning Tuesday, October 2nd, Cal-SOAP (California Student Opportunity and Access Program) will host Cash for College workshops in the Sacramento region. These free financial aid workshops offer help filling out applications for financial aid programs, including with FAFSA, the Dream Act, Cal-Grants, Middle Class Scholarship and Chafee Grants. Experts will be on-site to answer questions and to help with applications.
You and your family may attend any of the Cash for College workshops, regardless of where your child attends high school.
For more information on Cash for College workshops, please visit my websiteor call (916) 324-4676.
It is a pleasure to be of service.
