Everyone on the Coast is invited to join the Cabrillo Education Foundation for a night of celebration and fundraising. Enjoy appetizers, drink wine from Loos Family Vineyards and try handcrafted beer from the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013, at a fundraiser for the Cabrillo Education Foundation.
“We will pick the winner of our fall matching campaign prize and announce our allocation for next year that will help support reading and literacy, science and teacher's programs for our public schools,” said CEF board president Michele Hannegan. “This is very exciting since it’s only our second allocation ever.”
Last year, local schools in the Cabrillo Unified School District received $41,000 in much-needed funds thanks to donations garnered from individual donors and proceeds from the Starlight Soiree benefit event. The funds were distributed proportionally as Immediate Use Funds to each of the district's seven schools based on the student population.
The Jan 26 event will take place at the Oceano Hotel, and the Califuegos will provide entertainment. Dress is “coastside casual.”
Participating sponsors to date include:
United American Bank
Dick Charnock (Real Estate Funding)
Tickets purchased at the door are $50 per person or $90 for the couple. For Cabrillo Unified School District employees, tickets are $25 or $45 for a couple. Tickets can be purchased at Alifano Technologies; Main Street Goldworks and via Paypal at the Cabrillo Education Foundation website, www.CEFfund.org.
