Educational budget cuts from the state over multiple years have left public education of California in critical condition. Not only do our current students suffer the immediate impact of these cuts, but the ongoing effects caused by their lack of opportunity will impact our state for many years to come. Money raised through Sacramento Summer Festival will provide an immediate and direct impact into the lives of hundreds of local students, supplying educational opportunities otherwise unavailable. These experiences will serve as a springboard for our local students toward success in college and career.
