80th Anniversary Celebration - March 2018

Please enjoy our video showing our community service history throughout the last 80 years in Santa Ana. It was produced by the staff in the Santa Ana Public Library History Room: Dylan Almendral, Director of the History Room, JacovVelasco, Video Director, Edgar Fuentes and Victor Guidel, Sound/Lighting/Camera — and our own Susan Dobak. It’s a lovely walk through the past and a look to the future. If you watch the film you’ll see why we’ve tagged the SAPD. Hint: it’s a story about how life travels in full circles.

Best Taste of Santa Ana - May 2017

Thank you to the more than 800 people who purchased tickets to this year’s event!  It was a great time, albeit a very warm day.  There was so much great food from all of our participating restaurants, and we passed out icy treats to all of our attendees, as well.  The proceeds from the event help to fund all of our excellent philanthropic programs. Thank you to everyone involved!

Best Taste of Santa Ana.

Meet Evelin Peralta! Evelin attends Santa Ana High School, right across the street from our chapter. She loves CTE, and has taken Medical Core and Hospital Occupations courses. These courses helped her realize that she wants to be a Veterinarian Surgeon. She volunteers at the Santa Ana Zoo, is in Marching Band, and is also involved in the Achievement Institute of Scientific Studies. Evelin has chosen to attend UC Davis in the Fall. Congratulations, Evelin!

For thirty years, Assistance League of Santa Ana has given scholarships to graduating students within the CTE Program (Career Technical Education Program), in the SAUSD. This year alone, we have awarded twenty $1,000 scholarships. In total, we have awarded over $240,000 in scholarships.

Last Friday we held interviews for this year’s recipients. As usual, it was a group of very intelligent, ambitious, and poised young adults ready to take on the world of university study. Today we would like to introduce you to one of our student scholarship winners. Over the next couple of weeks, we will post a story daily about one of these amazing students.

Our College Scholarship program is one of the reasons to support Assistance League of Santa Ana, and right now you can do so by buying tickets, donating funds, or otherwise helping us with our upcoming event, The Best Taste of Santa Ana, to be held May 20th, 4 – 7 pm in beautiful downtown Santa Ana at Third and Sycamore/Second Street Promenade. All profits go to support our philanthropies.

We are a non-profit, all volunteer organization celebrating 80 years of service in Santa Ana.
