Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund opens new season with Sept. 16 lunch meeting


The Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund will kick off a new year of activities and programs with a lunch at noon Sept. 16 at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club.

Every year the fund targets a specific community need; this year’s focus will be on Youth and Education. The kickoff meeting will feature a panel discussion with community educators from the private and public sector to discuss education trends, including technology and the Common Core curriculum. Speakers will be Colleen O’Doyle, head of middle school at La Jolla Country Day School, and Dennis “Coach” Snyder, president / founder of the American Heritage Education Foundation.

The event will be open to women who may have an interest in learning about the Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund. Now in its 11th year, this nonprofit organization has pooled its resources to make an impact on the lives of those in need in the San Diego community. Please bring a friend or neighbor to share in this informative event. Registration and socializing begin at noon. For information and cost, contact Nancy Hashim at 855-756-0249 or visit
