Gene Drevno Scholarship Fundraiser
Beloved TEF board member Gene Drevno (1930-2008) was a lifelong cheerleader for education, an amazing mom, and a tireless volunteer for Torrance Education Foundation.
Gene raised her large family as a young widow in Torrance, valuing highly the excellent schools and inspiring teachers in Torrance Unified School District who gave her children the tools to succeed in work and in life. Later, she herself became an educator and spent decades helping student enrolled in TUSD.
Join us on Wednesday, September 18th, 2019 at the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach to celebrate the life of the inimitable Gene Drevno, and to help us raise the funds to present our next annual Gene Drevno Scholarship to a deserving TUSD student.
This annual evening of hilarity and camaraderie is always a great time, and your participation will ensure that another TUSD student has our community’s support for their college education. When you purchase your tickets from TEF, the ticket price becomes a (non-deductible) donation to Gene’s scholarship thanks to the generosity of our friends at the Comedy & Magic Club! When you attend the event on September 18th, we ask that each guest purchase at least two items (drinks, appetizers, entrees) from the menu to cover the club’s operating costs.
When you receive your ticket(s), please be sure to phone the Comedy & Magic Club with your ticket numbers handy to confirm your attendance. Your seats are not guaranteed, even if you have a ticket, if you have not confirmed your attendance by calling the club.
