Orange County holds fundraiser for coming Mandarin immersion program

March 4, 2012

A fundraiser for the new Mandarin Chinese immersion program dazzled attendees with the sights and sounds and flavors of China.

It was Chinese New Year again. The holiday was celebrated on Jan. 23 on our calendar.

But parents wanting to raise money for Orange County’s first-ever, public school Mandarin Chinese immersion program, needed a little extra time to pull together a luncheon extravaganza. The event featured silent auctions, a traditional lion dance, other dances and a Chinese feast at the Bell Tower Regional Community Center in Rancho Santa Margarita.

It may be Year of the Dragon, but it’s the year of the Bulldogs for these incoming students. The bulldogs are the mascot of Marian Bergeson Elementary in Laguna Niguel, where the program will launch with kindergarten and first grade in September.
