Six Year Old Ruby defines GIVING by dedicating her birthday party to Tony’s Treehouse!

24 Oct

Little Ruby is a BIG teacher.  This sweet 6 year old has inspired us, greatly. Together with her Momma “T”, they loved the idea of setting up a Money Tree for friends & family to make donations at her upcoming 6th Birthday party.  The money raised during her October 30 celebration will go directly to the family fund of Tony’s Treehouse.  In speaking with Tanya, this kind Mom shared her thoughts of wanting to do things differently… her dedication of raising Ruby with the mindfulness of generosity.   She stated “we want Ruby to always know the importance of giving… we are blessed to have so much in our life… giving back is a way for us to show our gratitude”.   The party invitation asked guests to consider bringing a small donation in lieu of or with a small present for the charity near & dear to their hearts, Tony’s Treehouse.  The gifts will be presented to Becky, Founder of the organization, at the date of her party.

Let’s rally together & assist sweet Ruby in her efforts to raise Dollars that make a Difference!  Please click on the “Donate Now” button, if you would like to participate. We hope to raise $2000 in support of her efforts, so let’s help Ruby reach her goal!  A gift of any size would bring her much joy!   We would love to include your personal message to Ruby, celebrating her generous spirit and heart.

Thank you for all you do to continue our mission of assisting families and youth in need.

Boys & Girls Club receives Treehouse donation – Martinez Scholarship Fund

12 Sep

In 2010 the Laguna Beach Boys & Girls Club established the “Martinez Scholarship Fund” honoring Tony Martinez.  Dollars raised and donated to the fund are used to send needy children of the Club to summer & winter camp as well as field trips during the year.

Last year the Treehouse raised $1000 for the fund.  This year our generous group raised $1,500!

Thank you to all who made this possible.

Treehouse gives to Laguna Beach Boys & Girls Club

11 Jul

Thank you to all volunteers and contributors participating in our May “Hearts for Hope” Benefit Fundraiser.  As a result of this event, we are able to dedicate a portion of the proceeds to the “Tony’s Scholarship Fund” of Laguna Beach Boys & Girls Club .  This scholarship is newly established to enable the less fortunate children of the Club to attend the special field trips or camping trips that the Club offers.

 

Please join us July 20, 7:15 pm, to present the Laguna Beach Boys and Girls Club with our first gift to ‘Tony’s Scholarship Fund’.

  

My experience with this Club:

 

The Laguna Boys & Girls Club provided a safe ,fun after school activity for Danny and Tony. Working full time and parenting has its challenges and the CLUB was there for me during times needed so I could work and provide for my family. As with the large majority of single parents, finances were tight and the CLUB assisted me with a scholarship.  That was a huge help for me… but the boys missed many of the field trips since ‘extras’ were not exactly in the budget.

Now the Treehouse is Giving Back. Through the Scholarship Fund we will help fund special field trips and Summer Camp which would ordinarily be out of reach due to family financial struggles.

Thanks for all you do!   Becky

This event is a reminder of the things that matter most in life.  “Be The Cause” is the non-profit organization that offers this day as an opportunity to raise funds for the many charity organizations in Southern California.  We raised over $1000!!!  The day was entirely free with live entertainment, free snacks and free t-shirts.  The entire 5K route was decorated with hundreds of inspiring artwork and handmade quotes along with fun activities for the children.   Contact us if you would like to participate in next years event becky@tonystreehouse.org.
