WiSH Education Foundation receives donation from Westfield Valencia Town Center

Westfield Valencia Town Center made a significant drop in the WiSH Education Foundation bucket with all the coins from the recently retired fountain from inside the mall.

The donation was part of a partnership between the two, which has helped host community-based fundraiser for the education nonprofit.

A portion of the funds are already allocated to host two events this summer — the Burrito Bowl on Aug. 20, and Cocktails on the Roof on Sept. 6p, both located on the Westfield property. 

The 10th annual Burrito Bowl, held on Town Center Drive from 7-9 p.m., is expected to feature football linemen from each of the six varsity football teams in the SCV as they race against time and each other to eat a 4-foot bean burrito donated by Sharkey’s Restaurant.

As part of the Burrito Bowl, football players and cheer squads will compete in a banner art contest that’s decided by taking a vote from community members via the Westfield Valencia Facebook Page.

Teams and cheer squads raise money by creating banners that can be voted on by community members by going to the Westfield Valencia Facebook and Instagram page. 

Raffle tickets from the teams are also available at the event, according to organizers.

Westfield is also selling the $5 raffle tickets at their management office for prizes that include a $2,000 shopping spree, a staycation at the Hyatt with breakfast and four tickets to Magic Mountain and gift cards to a variety of restaurants and retail locations.

Community members can also win tickets to the popular Cocktails on the Roof event by going to the Westfield site’s Sweepstakes Event Page.
