Kids reap rewards of Club 365 Children at all three La Cañada elementary schools reaped the rewards of Club 365 by seeing and learning about exotic rainforest animals. Club 365 is the contest sponsored by the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation to raise funds for the schools. Thanks to tremendous community support, this year’s Club 365 raised more than $105,000 for the LCFEF. The Club 365 program is only in its second year. The idea is simple: If a family donates $365 to the Educational Foundation from July 1, 2007, to May 23, 2008, their elementary age children automatically became members of Club 365. The grade level at each elementary school with the highest participation wins the contest at their school.
