2017 L-Fund Gala

The L-Fund rolled Out the Red Carpet for the 4th Annual Gala announcing a new educational aid program that will reach a cross-section of the Lesbian community including veterans, seniors, students and mothers in Coachella Valley.

In presenting this vision, Denise Highiet and Ann Wilson presented a check to the L-Fund’s President, Barbara Carpenter for $10,000, creating the L-Fund Educational Assistance Program (LEAP) to further assist Lesbians in need for educational assistance.  President Barbara Carpenter thanked them and we not only matched the $10,000 at our Gala but raised over $40,000 to jump-start the Education Fund!
