Special Thanks from the JSerra Shepherd’s Program

A message from Shepherd’s Chair Tracy Kozlowski

Thank you to all the generous supporters of this weekends Shepherd’s Christmas Event.  With the success of this two day event we are able to bring the gift of a Christ filled education to many students who would not have the means to be a part of JSerra.  The power of JSerra parents coming together to support this cause effects many lives.

We are blessed with such dedicated parents who believe in our mission to make available JSerra to all that want the education here. Our family has been touched by those that have been helped thru the Shepherd’s program.

It’s not too late to send in a donation or pledge to give one student a place behind a desk at JSerra.  Please consider sponsoring a student.  There are also opportunities for sponsoring sport’s fees, books, laptops, and to feed a Hungry Lion.

JSPA Fashion Show A Roaring Success

JSerra mom Kathy Guerry models a chic day look.
On Thursday, May 13, 115 JSerra mothers and friends gathered at El Adobe Restaurant in San Juan Capistrano for a day of fashion and friendship. Guests arrived at 11:00 to peruse the fabulous vendors who showcased their wares at display tables in the restaurant’s courtyard. Each vendor donated a portion of their proceeds to the event. Guests also had the opportunity to purchase opportunity drawing tickets to win fabulous gift baskets like a family membership to Renaissance ClubSport in Aliso Viejo and a family photo shoot with Simonson Photographers, to name a few. At noon, guests were invited into the dining room where they enjoyed a delicious lunch and watched other JSerra moms model stylish clothes from Chico’s San Juan Capistrano. The models were primped and prepped by Taylor Hill Salon in San Juan Capistrano.

All proceeds of this event benefited JSerra’s Shepherd’s Financial Aid Program, which awards tuition assistance to more than 100 worthy JSerra students each school year. To find out more about this worthy cause and for information on how to contribute, click here.
