That time of year is approaching and Community Builders of San Jacinto (CBSJ) are getting ready to kick off their annual Hamburger Bash. This year it will be held Saturday, March 7th from 11 to 2pm at North Mountain Middle School: 1202 E Seventh St. San Jacinto, CA. All proceeds will benefit San Jacinto Unified School District (SJUSD)
“This is our big event of the year,” says Lynn Peterson, President of CBSJ, who proclaims the importance of the annual event in raising funds for San Jacinto Unified School District. The money raised will be invested into the school system via scholarships, where funds are needed the most.
Putting on the event continues to be a community effort. The non-profit CBSJ, receives donations from generous businesses in which a “pay-it-forward” consciousness is cultivated and built.
Over recent years, San Jacinto High School’s ROTC members have lent a helping hand in assembling the event, serving the food, and pitching in to clean up after the event. In addition, the generosity of local business owners, such as Darrell and Barbara Salkeld of Grocery Outlet, have donated gift cards, burgers, buns, and trimmings that will be served. Many other local businesses and community members are donating their time, products and services to make the event possible.
CBSJ will be serving up the community and putting the “fun” in fundraiser. $7.00 will get you admission to the event and includes a hamburger with the works, a drink, and dessert. There will be door prizes and upwards of a hundred items raffled off, including toys for kids, gift baskets, and money trees.
Peterson says she is hoping for a turn out of about 400 people this year.
The goal of Community Builders reads as follows, “Ideal community filled with fellowship, enthusiasm, service and the desire to meet our neighbor’s needs; planning and working together will keep our assigned homes in sight of our master builder.”
The non-profit organization has been around for 70 years, and Peterson says her favorite part of being involved with the organization is being able to give back to the community, saying, “I’m a big proponent of the community, it gives me such great pleasure.”
Burger Bash tickets can be purchased at the door or by calling Lynn Peterson at 951-255-5598.
Raffle tickets will be sold at the event: 1 for $1.00, 6 for $5.00, or 12 for 10.00.
