On June 11, 2018, the ACF board was proud to pay tribute to long time board member Sarah Alevizon for her many years of service to ACF and the Anaheim community. “There is one thing that remains constant, and that is the importance of CHARITY. That is what the Anaheim Community Foundation has always represented—and still does.”
