School Recipients

GraceFest is a community outreach music festival bringing all Christians together in unity. A portion of the proceeds from the festival go to numerous local Christian school scholarship programs to provide further education.

GraceFest was founded by Ron and Yvette Emard who originally produced the festival (first 12 years) through their nonprofit called The Kids Charities of the Antelope Valley.  In December of 2017 the Emard's put Kid's Charities operations on hiatus status for one year and as of November 2018 reintstated the agency. In January 2018 Communities for Christ was started as a ministry nonprofit organzation that brings Christians from churches valley-wide together to serve and pray for their community as a unified and active team.  Ron is the Dealer Principal at Antelope Valley Harley-Davidson in Lancaster.  His wife Yvette is the director of Communities for Christ and Kid's Charities and both serve as co-directors of GraceFest. Ron and his wife Yvette are known for their untiring devotion to their community through numerous signature fundraising events raising more than $5 million dollars for local children's charities and faith based schools.
