Merchant Partners

Torrance Education Foundation appreciates the generosity of these prominent merchants, whose community support programs allow customers to benefit TEF with their regular shopping. To participate, sign up to support TEF, then shop as you would at Ralph’s or use Amazon Smile for your Amazon purchases. A percentage of your purchase will be donated to TEF to make YOUR community better. Here is how it works:

Amazon Smile

Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to TEF!

It’s the same Amazon you know: Same products, same prices, same service.

2018 Win a Toyota Winner Mylee Tynen

2018 Toyota Car Raffle Winner Mylee Tynen and her family

Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets to the 14th Annual Spectacular Toyota Car Raffle in the Spring  or 2018, benefiting Torrance Education Foundation!

We are thrilled to congratulate our winner, Mylee Tynen, whose family now owns a beautiful, brand new 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid SUV. Mylee is a teacher at Hickory Elementary school. When the winning ticket was selected at the 2018 Black & White Affair Dinner & Benefit, Mylee’s Principal Edna Schumacher was in the room and sent Mylee a text. “I thought for sure it was a joke!”, says Mylee, “But then, more texts kept coming from other people I knew. I couldn’t believe it!”

Everyone at TEF is deeply grateful to Toyota Motor Sales, USA, for their great generosity in donating our prize vehicle.

Thanks to thousands of supporters who purchased raffle tickets in 2018, Torrance Education Foundation raised more than $50,000 to support teachers, classrooms, school groups and other District priorities.

Tickets for the 2019 Spectacular Toyota Car Raffle will go on sale in January!
