Celebrating 10 Years of Changing Lives!

Home/News & Events, Recognition and accolades from our community/Celebrating 10 Years of Changing Lives!

Local businessman Mario Pedrozzi left the community with one of its greatest assets: funds to provide for higher education for Livermore students. Since the first year of distributing scholarships in 2008, the Pedrozzi Foundation has been working hard to carry out the will of Mario and support our local students.

The Pedrozzi Foundation celebrated an exciting milestone this year; 2018 marks ten years of awarding scholarships to Livermore students. Since 2008, $4 million has been awarded to over 1,100 students.

Supporters of the Pedrozzi Foundation gathered on a beautiful day in September at the Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort & Spa to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of awarding scholarships. This special event gave the Pedrozzi Foundation another opportunity to thank its many supporters for their contributions to the Foundation. At the event, the Pedrozzi Foundation received recognition from local elected officials.
