San Marino High School’s Titanium Robotics celebrated a big accomplishment during its Friday Night Movie fundraiser last week. The team partnered with Camp del Corazon, a nonprofit organization that provides opportunities free of charge for children with heart disease.
Titanium’s goal was to raise $1,500 to sponsor a child’s trip to Camp del Corazon’s residential summer camp, but they ended up raising more than $1,800, all of which will be donated.
Camp del Corazon is dedicated to enriching the lives of children who may not get to experience summer camp because of their need for constant medical attention. The medically supervised programs they provide introduce these kids to everything from STEM to building confidence.
The robotics business cabinet had been planning the event since June, and even though the event was highly anticipated, Movie Night exceeded all expectations. Business president Celine Chih said, “The night was a greater success than I ever could have imagined. Many of the experiences Camp del Corazon offers are life changing for the kids, so I am grateful that we were able to use our resources as a team to give this opportunity to a child.”

On Friday night, students and families all gathered at the San Marino High School quad to enjoy the movie “Big Hero 6” and support the cause. Along with the movie, the team served pizza, popcorn and churros, and set up games and activities. Titanium’s engineering team built their own cornhole boards and set up a station where participants could engrave custom key chains with Titanium’s CNC (computer numeric control) machine.
Many students played pingpong and other mini-games with their friends throughout the night and had fun winning prizes at the spinning wheel — the most coveted prize being a date with Titanium’s mechanical captain Howard Huang.
Beyond prizes and mini games, the fundraiser was an amazing example of the enthusiasm of the San Marino community. Event Coordinator Lauren Wang said: “It was heartwarming to see the generosity of the community in action.”
The Robotics Cabinet is thrilled to have had such a rewarding experience after months of planning and collaboration. Titanium’s appreciation goes out to everyone who donated and came out to support the cause. With the success of this year’s first major outreach event, the team looks forward to continuing to make a difference.
