The Moore Advantage Team, consisting of Dorothy Moore, Lauren Moore and Jim Bilwacks, Lauren’s husband, wanted to invest in local kids. They contacted a former client, SBCO president Denise Anthony, and told her, “We’d like to help. We totally believe in the work of SBCO.” Denise suggested they consider investing in the SBCO Scholarship Endowment Fund. Lauren noted, “I had heard about SBCO’s college scholarships at the annual SBCO meeting and Golden Goose Fashion show. I was lucky enough to have the money to attend college, but so many cannot afford it. Our contribution can help deserving students.”
Dorothy stated, “We have been so fortunate with our business. We like to give back to the community. It’s very important to us. I have photos on my phone of the Kids’ Closet building in Mammoth. I show it to prospective home buyers, so they understand that SaddleBrooke is a caring community committed to helping local children.”
