FULLERTON, Calif., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Since 2006, the Fullerton Technology Foundation has raised close to $2 million dollars to support technology in the Fullerton School District. This is largely due to the support and generosity of the Sugarman Family Trust and Jason Sugarman. When Hilda Sugarman, President of the Foundation, first saw the need for technology back in 2006, she and her son Jason provided start-up funds of $250,000 to ensure the Foundation get off on the right start.
The Fullerton Technology Foundation has provided over thousands of electronic devices to students and teachers, including laptops, iPads, digital microscopes, digital cameras, sound systems and interactive boards.
Jason Sugarman and his family continually organize fund-raising events and bring in supporters and sponsors to the cause.
"What started out as $50 dinners and a speech, has turned into the most successful Elementary School Fundraiser in Orange County," Jason Sugarman stated."Jason is exemplary – people should be doing what he is doing," said Hilda Sugarman. "He is an example of someone who realizes the needs in public education and is generous to support those schools that got him where he is today." Mrs. Sugarman added, "Not enough people give back to their schools." Jason Sugarman and the Sugarman family continue to make every effort to support the Fullerton Technology Foundation and provide technology to the students and staff in the Fullerton School District. The 3rd annual wine auction fundraiser event will be held June 1, 2013, at the Fullerton Arboretum.
