Alamo Community Foundation's first fundraiser netted approximately $59,000 to pay for Alamo incorporation feasibility studies required by the state. Two hundred people attended the silent auction and dinner in late January, including Assemblyman Guy Houston (R., 15th) and County Supervisor Mary N. Piepho.
"We put our faith in the people of Alamo, and the people of Alamo came through like champions," said Ellen Sanchez, Foundation Vice President of Operations.
In total, the studies will cost approximately $200,000, and more fundraisers are planned. To get involved, call Barbara Munkner at 837-2937.
