Dear Wayne,

On behalf of the Sempra Energy Foundation, I'm pleased to enclose a contribution in the amount of $5,000 in support of the Student Information Technology Education and Scholarship (SITES) program in Los Angeles, CA. The Sempra Energy Foundation is proud to support this program. Please continue to work with Carolyn Williams to coordinate the details surrounding our support of this program in partnership with your organization.

We are pleased to join you in this worthwhile cause.

Best Regards,

BDPA Los Angeles chapter president John Malonson and the chapter's BETF liaison David Malonson have been a pleasure to work with over the past weeks and months. They aggressively seek out funding opportunities in concert with BETF and as such it is a pleasure to be able to report on this 'success story' in their fundraising efforts.
