Yolanda Valenzuela, Executive Director at Kym’s Angels was on hand to make the presentation. A short time later, Valenzuela announced the donation would be multiplied tenfold, for a grand total of $1,000,000. This is the largest single monetary donation in the history of the Rey Feo Scholarship Foundation.
El Rey Feo’s principal function is to raise funds for the RFSF; and as the candidate for Rey Feo 75 last year, John raised over $250,000 to qualify for the title, and will continue to raise more money this year. The money raised goes directly to scholarship awards benefiting area youth pursuing either a 2 or 4 year college degree or trade school certification.
