The luncheon, sponsored by Government Agencies Federal Credit Union, is open to anyone interested in becoming a member of the foundation. All paid or pledged memberships are eligible for a drawing for a dinner for four at the Barbara Worth Golf Resort near Holtville.
Guest speakers will be two IVC graduates, U.S. Magistrate Judge Roger Benitez and El Centro optometrist Dr. Janina Soto.

Benitez, who immigrated to the United States from Cuba at age 10, is a graduate of Central Union High School in El Centro, IVC, San Diego State University and Western States (now Thomas Jefferson) School of Law.
