The Learning Castle, La Cañada Prep Honor Donors, Volunteers



The Learning Castle and La Cañada Preparatory held their 14th annual Diamond Donor Dinner on May 25 at the Oakmont Country Club in Glendale.
The dinner and ceremony were attended by the schools’ major donors and celebrates the fiscal goals of the annual Giving Campaign and 100% parent participation. This year’s dinner also recognized the nineteen room parents who volunteered their time this school year organizing special events and fundraising activities.
Development Director Aggie Malolepszy opened the evening and revealed the final total raised for the year. She also reminded attendees of all the special events held during the year.
“At this event, one year ago, I promised you that this school year would be full of social events,” Malolepszy told attendees, “and boy did we deliver!”
More than 10 events were on the calendar this year, such as family meet-and-greets at Round Table and Proper in La Cañada, the first-ever Christmas tree lighting, and the school’s thirtieth anniversary gala held at Castaway in Burbank to name but a few
LCP co-Director Justin Whalin then detailed all the important improvements and continued enrichment programs that the annual fund financed.
“When we were planning for this year, we budgeted using the amount we set as our fundraising goal,” Whalin said. “We could have never imagined that you, our parent body, would exceed that amount by almost $200,000! We are now in the enviable position of selecting projects from our wish list.”
Director Terry Villanueva closed the evening by recognizing the generosity of support shown by the major donors in attendance: “Without your generosity, we could not provide many of the enrichment opportunities that help make our schools special.”
The following were recognized for their service as room mothers: Diane Costandi, Maral Kirkpatrick, Sarine Davidian, Jane Lee, Argine Kadymyan, Maria Deftarios, Danielle Waltz, Andrineh Terantonians, Sera Shenouda, Iren Tsaturyan, Jacklin Sarkissiani, Arpine Zohrabyan, Magge Arutunyan, Angie Karroum, Anna Dolmazyan, Caty Avanesian, Anna Isaiants, Laura Esmalian and Ella Semerjian.
