The Foundation supported the Institute of Industrial Systems Engineers by donating Bronco gift cards at 

the IME Thanksgiving dinner. The event has taken place for over 45 years and brings together the Cal Poly 

Pomona family to celebrate Thanksgiving. This year’s dinner took place on November 18 and generated a 

crowd of over 200 guests. 

The IME Thanksgiving dinner is completely conducted by the IME department students. 

Hello Anne,


Thanks again for your support of the BDRC and our 

fundraising efforts for Dia De Los Muertos on Friday 

11/3/17. Through the foundation’s contributions, we were 

able to raise $800 through our opportunity drawing. The 

funds raised from this event will go directly to student 

scholarships and Bronco Dreamers Resource Center 

programming which includes DREAMers Ally Trainings, 

Immigration Clinics and our UndocuGraduation. The 

attached picture is the prize winner for the gift bag—as an 

alum of CPP, she was ecstatic when she received her prize 

and her CPP goodies.


We appreciate the partnership we developed with 

foundation through this event and we look forward to more 

partnerships in the near future!


Take care,

Mike Manalo-Pedro, M.A.
