Betty Ferguson Foundation
Sponsored By Valencia Acura
During the week of June 25, 2007 KHTS was happy to welcome back the Betty Ferguson Foundation to the KHTS Community Resource Station. We featured Marjanne Priest, Julie Sturgeon, Joyce Carson and Jane Bettencourt-Soto on the KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight Show – hosted by Janice Murray .
The KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight Show is sponsored by Valencia Acura .
The Betty Ferguson Foundation, an organization that is committed to supporting and promoting personal and professional growth in women and teen girls - was established in 1998.
Betty Ferguson was the mother of Judy Cox, one of the foundation's founding members. Shortly after Betty passed away in 1996, Judy was going through her mother’s finances, and discovered that Betty gave her money to women and youth organizations. She lived a simple life, not giving to herself but to others.
Today, The Betty Ferguson Foundation serves our community by hosting and providing monthly women’s and teen girl’s meetings, workshops, seminars, and a book club. The foundation continues to support fellow non-profit organizations and provide educational scholarships to College of the Canyons, here in the Santa Clarita Valley.
The Betty Ferguson Foundation will be hosting their 7th Annual Woman of the Year Dinner, July 14, 2007, at the Hyatt Valencia. This award is given to women who sincerely desire to help others reach their highest potential.
Elizabeth Hopp – Senior Vice President of Bank of Santa Clarita will be this year’s honoree.
Betty Ferguson Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals and corporate supporters to provide the funding necessary to host seminars and workshops for women and teen girls.
