This month, we have an exciting opportunity to address education issues in south Orange County at the CARE Foundation's 2010 Alternative Energy Summit, presented by Southern California Edison and hosted at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.

The CARE Foundation, KCOMM, Microsoft, UCI, AIM Mail Centers and the Internet Marketing Association are all proud sponsors of this extraordinary event which is expected to draw over 100 members of the community, including students from Capistrano Unified School District, to discuss alternative energy and power issues with a focus on near-term solutions.

Featured speakers will discuss nuclear energy, electric vehicles and renewable energy. Students who attend this event will receive a Congressional Certificate from Congressman Ken Calvert's office for their participation.

Please join me on Saturday, October 30, for this unique event that will bring together leaders from education, government, youth services, and business to address education and alternative energy for California.

I appreciate your consideration and look forward to seeing you at this event!
