The 2022 Fontana Days Festival was great for attendees — and just as great for the many students and nonprofit groups which benefited from the event.

The Exchange Club of Fontana recently presented a check for $30,000 to the Fontana Unified School District Board of Education for scholarships that were awarded to seniors at all seven high schools in Fontana. Giving the check to the FUSD were R. Dale Evans Sr., president of the Exchange Club, and Sonja Dawkins, the club’s scholarship chairwoman and immediate past president. Over the past 20 years, the club (which coordinates the Fontana Days Festival) has awarded more than $3 million to local high school seniors.

The festival, which was held June 2-5, had its biggest turnout in many years with more than 41,000 guests, according to R. Dale Evans Sr., president of the Exchange Club of Fontana, which coordinates the event along with the City of Fontana.

“With more than 20 information booths, food clothes and jewelry vendors, the carnival attendees enjoyed good food, received important information, and bought a variety of items available at the park,” Evans said.
