Scholarship Fundraising Event!

Just when you thought you had run out of choices, we present to you The No-Dinner Dinner. As wonderful as all these dinners sound, perhaps you just can’t attend any of them. But rather than leave you feeling empty inside, we give you the option of attending The No-Dinner Dinner. Simply send a donation in any amount and then honor your prior commitments while knowing you’ve done a good deed. Remember, all money donated goes directly to the CCLA Scholarship Endowment. No donation is too small (or too big). And the No-Dinner Dinner is 100% tax deductible for those who opt to take charitable deductions on their tax returns.

How can you simultaneously have a wonderful meal, meet new Cornellians and help provide much-needed scholarships for deserving Los Angeles Cornell students?  The Club’s annual series of Scholarship Dinners & Events offers you a chance to have a great time while benefiting CCLA’s Scholarship Endowment.  This year’s dining and event options can’t miss!

From September through Thanksgiving, generous Cornell hosts open their homes, tables and other interesting venues to other scholarship-supporting Cornellians and friends, with 100 percent of all donations going to the Endowment.  As veteran attendees know, Scholarship Dinners are a win-win-win deal for hosts, guests and the Club. Many choose to go to more than one event; a few years ago one member attended six!

In place since 1996, the CCLA Endowment now stands above $400,000. Out of this total, this year we are providing $30,000 in scholarship awards. The club is continuing to grow the Endowment through the Scholarship Dinner program and other fund-raising.

Your tax adviser can explain how your Dinner costs may be deductible. If your schedule prevents you from attending a Dinner this year, please consider making a donation in lieu of attending. We hope to see you at one of our events this fall!
