Heritage Hog Scholarship

The Heritage Hog Scholarship Program helps local youth further their agricultural education and at the same time raise funds for improvements to the Fairgrounds.  This year’s recipient of the Heritage Hog Scholarship is Aromas 4-H member Isabel Hanchai.  The Foundation congratulates Bel on her accomplishments raising, breeding and exhibiting livestock and wishes her the greatest success as she attends college to further her education in Animal Sciences & Agribusiness on her journey to becoming a High School Ag Teacher.

Isabel will raise this year’s Heritage Hog and auction it at the Santa Cruz County Fair Jr. Livestock Auction on September 14, 2019 at 10:00 AM.

Your donations will go first to the $2,000 Scholarship for the Heritage Hog Scholar and the remaining donations toward facility improvements on the Fairgrounds that, in many ways, also benefit the youth of the community.  This year we will upgrading the Fire Protection System at the Fairgrounds.

Please support the Heritage Hog Scholarship Program.  You’ll be helping Bel obtain higher education while “Funding Your Fairgrounds Future”!

We received a $75,000 Matching Grant from Monterey Peninsula Foundation, host of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, to purchase a new diesel pump to upgrade the 1970’s Fire Protection System at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds.
Will you please help us match the $75,000 Grant by giving a Heritage Hog Donation?

(All donations received after the Heritage Hog Scholarship amount is reached are used to upgrade the Fairgrounds; this year they will be used to upgrade the Fire Protection System) Every $1 you donate puts us $2 closer to upgrading our Fire Protection System. Your Support Counts!
