Though we didn't quite make our $10,000 goal (even though we were so close!), the money we have raised will help us tremendously in support of Project Launch.  We cannot thank you enough for making your gift and for continuously promoting our cause to your friends, family and fellow alumni.  It is because of you that we will have funds to provide a program for a few ambitious, bright and talented students from under-resourced high schools in downtown Los Angeles, to help them succeed in today's rapidly growing technology sector.
