Shakey’s Memorial Fundraiser for EMUHSD Adrian Castro Student Scholarships

by Anne Donofrio-Holter

El Monte

Shakey’s El Monte is holding a memorial fundraiser in honor of El Monte High School student Adrian Castro.  Castro was one of ten people killed when a charter bus collided with a FedEx truck in Northern California last month.  Castro, along with several other students, were in route to visit Humboldt State University when the tragedy occurred.
On Monday, May 26 through Thursday, May 29, from 3 to 9 pm, Shakey’s El Monte will donate 25% of the net food sales of anyone who identifies themselves as a supporter of the scholarship fund.  Phone orders are included as well.
“Please bring your entire family and as many friends as you can to support this great cause,” said Jill Nickum, Shakey’s manager.  “Plan on eating here or call in your order for pick-up.  Just let the cashier know before you order that you are supporting the fundraiser.”
All scholarships from this fundraiser will be awarded to El Monte Union High School District students in the name of Adrian Castro.
“We want to thank Ms. Nickum and Shakey’s El Monte for this generous gesture for the benefit of our students and in the memory of Adrian,” said Superintendent Nick Salerno.
Shakey’s El Monte is located at 11420 Valley Boulevard. Phone 626-350-4411.
