Linda Peterson, Kath Natzke, Linda Tetu, Ceal Sayah, Linda Acosta, Ana Fe Coste, and Genevieve Trujillo participated in the Las Margaritas de Las Cruces Golf Tournament on November 3 and 4, to promote golfing for women. With money raised from the tournament, the team collectively decided to donate to the Mckinney-Vento Project Link Program at Las Cruces Public Schools. The group donated $1,400 to the program to purchase snacks, clothing, shoes, and supplies for students facing homelessness. The group is looking forward to keeping this donation going year after year. LCPS is thankful for this partnership as the funds will go directly towards helping students make sure they have what they need to be successful in the classroom. Thank you!
