The Arts Programs: We would like to thank the Kenneth A. Picerne Foundation for making generous contributions to arts programs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito’s Griset Branch in Encinitas. Through the Artist Outreach Project, the Picerne Foundation has provided our club with $65,000 in arts-based programming over the past five years. The Foundation has made it possible for our organization to host special projects including Alex Long’s hand building workshops and tile painting classes by Lynne Adams. Thank you to the Picerne Foundation for your continued support!
