Driven by dreams of opportunity, Eleni Bukuvalas and Wolfgang Gagon left their respective countries in post-World War II Europe to start a new life in America. The beauty and climate of California drew them to San Diego where they met. There they built a loving and prosperous marriage based on hard work and sacrifice. Educators by profession, they always found time to encourage, inspire, and help others. Over the course of their lives, the Gagons amassed a substantial real estate portfolio and stimulated revitalization in their beloved city of San Diego. The Carson Scholars Fund is thrilled to announce that the greatest part of the estate that Eleni and Wolfgang worked so hard to create was set aside for furthering education through the youth missions executed by the Carson Scholars Fund. This represents the largest gift in the history of CSF. The selfless spirits of Eleni and Wolfgang Gagon will continue through the mentoring of deserving children of California, and of San Diego in particular, for many years to come.
