What is Cheers for Children?  

Presented by Junior Achievement of Sacramento, Cheers for Children is a philanthropic event dedicated to raising money for economic empowerment education programs in the Greater Sacramento Area and will take place on June 10, 2016.

 Invest in the future entrepreneurs  and business leaders of Sacramento!  Join us for great food, fancy cocktails  and a fabulous live auction under the  stars at the private Granite Bay  residence of Jonna Ward, CEO of  Visionary Integration  Professionals. Attended each year by  our community’s most influential  leaders, Cheers for Children is not to  be missed!

What does Junior Achievement do?  At no other time in recent history has the need for financial literacy and self-reliance been more evident.  America's children are leaving school without the skills they need to transition to successful adulthood.  At JA we recruit, train, and mobilize a minimum of 750 volunteers each year to teach financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship programs in local schools for grades K-12.  JA volunteers bring the curriculum to life with real world experiences, enhancing the relevancy of education and giving young people the tools they need to take practical steps to achieve their dreams in the future.

What are the funds raised used for?  At JA, we are working to respond to the urgent need for economic empowerment education in our community, but can not keep up with the growing demand.  100% of the money raised by this event goes directly to programs, enabling us to reach more kids with the powerful Junior Achievement experience.  Last year, with only 4 full-time staff equivalents, we reached over 12,500 students in our region (70% of which come from socio-economically challenged communities).  With your help, we can do even more this year!
