“America’s Mayor” to Deliver Keynote Address at Fundraising Event
Bermuda Dunes, CA– Desert Christian Academy (DCA) will host former New York City Mayor and presidential candidate Rudolph W. “Rudy” Giuliani as keynote speaker at the Academy’s 22nd Annual Auction Gala. The event, which will take place March 3 at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort in Indian Wells, serves as a critical support of DCA’s tuition assistance efforts.
Prior to the auction, Desert Christian Academy will host a private reception for the Coachella Valley’s elected officials. Mayors from each valley city have been invited to attend a VIP Mayors’ Reception at 4:45 p.m., with the auction following. In recognition of Giuliani’s attendance, this year’s event is dedicated to honoring the “heroes among us”.
“Honoring valley heroes must include recognizing our local elected officials, who give of their time and talents to make this community a better place,” says Dave Fulton, Desert Christian Academy’s founder and head of school. “We’re blessed to be able to connect our local mayors with ‘America’s Mayor’ prior to the event so they can share stories and fellowship together”.
Desert Christian Academy’s Annual Auction Gala provides much needed funding for the school’s Tuition Assistance Program, which gives students from all economic backgrounds the opportunity to attend DCA. Last year’s event, which featured former First Lady Laura Bush, drew more than 600 attendees and raised more than $375,000 to help provide children all over the valley a faith-based, Christ-centered education that builds good students of great character. Desert Christian Academy is confident that Mayor Giuliani’s presence will create the same excitement, attendance and results as last year.
Located in Bermuda Dunes, California, Desert Christian Academy is home to nearly 500 students from toddlers to 12th graders. For information on the Annual Auction Gala, or to make reservations to attend, please contact Desert Christian Academy at 760-345-2848.
