Auction and Benefit Reception
Thursday, October 22, 2015

Thank You for Supporting this Year’s Annual Benefit! With your help, we raised over $175,000 to continue advancing our educational mission. The Annual Benefit is CRF-OC’s only major fundraiser of the year and all proceeds support the organization's highly regarded civic and law-related education programs – Mock Trial, Peer Court, Law Day, Constitution Day, and the Orange County Career Forum.

CRF-OC’s engaging and often life-changing programs make a positive difference in the lives of nearly 10,000 Orange County high school students and adult volunteers each year and have earned CRF-OC a reputation for innovation and excellence. Funds raised from the Annual Benefit allow CRF-OC to continue providing these programs at no cost to participating youth, helping to fill a critical need for civic learning and ensuring equal opportunity to all students despite crippling budget cuts in public education.

Invest in the youth of Orange County for today and tomorrow. Your participation in the Annual Benefit is a great way to support the work of CRF-OC and celebrate with others who value civic literacy.

Support Civic Education Today for a Stronger Democracy Tomorrow!

“To neglect civic learning is to neglect a core pillar of American democracy. Our commitments to civic equality, democratic accountability, public deliberation, and a political culture based on shared values all depend on widespread civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions.”
