Davis High School alumni and community members are invited to enjoy an evening of bunco to benefit the Student Activity Grant Program offered by the Davis High School Blue & White Foundation. The bunco party begins at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at Sudwerk, 2001 Second St. in Davis.
The Student Activity Grant Program provides support for DHS student applicants who need funds for curricular or extracurricular activities during their sophomore, junior or senior years. Examples of activities that may be considered for funding are attendance to an academic conference, sports training camp or fine art workshop; tutoring; or assistance with expenses related to extramural school activities (i.e., costuming, sports equipment, musical instruments).
For the 2013 spring semester, the foundation received and funded 12 requests for students participating in leadership conferences, music programs, musical theater, art summer school, a clinical oncology conference, math tutoring and travel to Nicaragua to teach English to residents.
The Student Activity Grant program is funded solely by donations from DHS alumni and the Davis community.
All are welcome to join the Aug. 17 bunco festivities by playing (the cost is $25), sponsoring (levels start at $50), donating a raffle prize or giving a monetary donation.
