Nat Trives’ 85th Birthday Celebration

POSTPONED!



Nat Trives’ 85th Birthday Celebration

Nat Trives (aka “Mr. Santa Monica”) has dedicated his adult life to fostering lifelong learning. It is something he is passionate about – not just for today but for what it means tomorrow.

In celebration of his 85th Birthday, Nat invites you to a Family Fun Fair on the Santa Monica Pier! Proceeds from the event will benefit Santa Monica College’s Early Learning Lab opening in Fall 2020.


2020 Beneficiary: Santa Monica College’s Early Learning Lab

Where learning begins is critical and is at the crux of why, this year, Nat has selected Santa Monica College’s new Early Childhood Lab School as the recipient of funds raised at this event. The Santa Monica Early Childhood Lab School is an innovative childhood laboratory school spearheaded by Santa Monica College in partnership with the City of Santa Monica, RAND, and Growing Place to serve the community while enabling teachers in training to develop crucial expertise under the guidance of leading education professionals.

This groundbreaking initiative is dedicated to providing the children of working families with an exceptional early education in the critical primary years of life. With this collaboration, the Lab School will benefit future generations with inspiring leading-edge approaches, a diverse setting and family focus. Specifically, funds raised are earmarked to support tuition subsidies for low-income Santa Monica families.

Not only does the SMC program benefit families but also paves the way for the teachers of tomorrow who will have access to the program for hands-on exposure to what makes these programs so incredible.
