"All of us were amazed at how involved the kids were in raising funds for patients," PMMC's Director of Development Melissa Sciacca said in a statement. "It was truly remarkable to see so many children demonstrate a growing sense of philanthropy at such a young age."
St. Cecilia's School in Tustin was awarded the grand prize for raising almost $650. Students were invited to view a live seal release into the ocean on June 3 at the Montage Laguna Beach.
"The Change the Life of a Seal Program is important because we help seals so they may live and so they can be released back to the wild," said student Jane Byszewski. "God made them to live, not to get hurt."
The center will do the "Change" the Life of a Seal challenge again in the fall. Contact Debbie MacCarter at (949) 494-3050 or email@example.com if you would like your class to participate.
