Enjoy Palos Verdes Peninsula Education Foundation 2016 Main Event!
Palos Verdes Peninsula Education Foundation (PEF) will be holding its annual “Main Event” fundraiser at Terranea Resort on Saturday, May 7, 2016, to raise additional funds for the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District. This year’s event “Live From Palos Verdes, It’s Saturday Night”, will be a fun evening with nightclub open seating, New York inspired food stations, SNL inspired comedy show, dancing, silent and live auctions with the proceeds going to support the Palos Verdes Peninsula School program. The cost is $250 per person if purchased by April 22, 2016, or $275 thereafter until tickets are sold out.
The Palos Verdes Peninsula Education Foundation was founded in 1979 to raise much needed money for our schools that the State was not providing. PEF’s first gift to the School District was $250,000. The number of students and amount of government aid has varied tremendously and the school district relies on these donations from PEF for the shortfall. These donated funds are being spent to retain teachers, library aides, keep class sizes smaller, music instruction, academic counselors at high schools, college and career centers, STEM funding, help with science fair funding and teacher grants for innovative classroom projects. This year the PEF is pledging $3.4 million to keep supporting the above programs, and can’t do it without everyone’s support big or small. There will also be an opportunity to win a Lexus by purchasing tickets before the event. (Winner does not need to be present.) Tickets can be purchased on line at www.pvpef.org for $50 each or $125 for three tickets.
