A tribute to Jenette Vanella raising funds for a place of honor at the Chico Children's Museum AGzibit.
You are invited to donate to the museum through the Big Harvest drive. The drive only lasts until December and will help raise more funds than just your dollars, since there are funds to match a percentage of the money raised.
*Be sure to select the Chico children’s museum as the program and type in the comments that it is in memory of Jenette Vanella. Donations can be made online, over the phone or with a check in the mail.
