Bret Harte Middle School Silent Auction 2011
On May 11, 2011 Brete Harte Middle School held its annual silent auction event to raise funds to support their sister school, The Doris Dillon School in Cambodia. Efforts for this event went to nursing and providing scholarships for girls in impoverished families. Bloomster's answered the call and provided a donation for the silent auction to help support those abroad that have limited opportunities.
The Doris Dillon School is a schoole serving over 200 7th-9th grade students from four remote villages in Cambodia. The Doris Dillon School project is run through American Assistance for Cambodia, which has already built over 400 such schools through the Rural Schools Project.
