Palos Verdes Peninsula Education Foundation 2021 Main Event
Palos Verdes Peninsula Education Foundation (PEF) will be holding its annual “Main Event” fundraiser online this year on May 1, 2021, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. to raise additional funds for the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District. This year’s event Main Event Live will be free and held online but you must register in advance at www.maineventauction.com. You will have the opportunity to bid for fine wines and spirits, beauty packages, vacation getaways, activities for kids, school spirit items and much more. The online auction starts on April 21, 2021, at 8:00 a.m., and goes through May 1, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. This is a great way to start shopping for some great deals while supporting all 17 PVPUSD schools at the same time.
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. Pledged funds for this year will help support the above programs and all support is welcome – big or small – especially when schools have had to be creative with their teaching this year. 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. There will also be a raffle for a year of dining at Terranea Resort. The winner of this event will be drawn online at the Main Event. Tickets for this raffle are $100 each and can be purchased www.maineventauction.com.
This year you will be able to purchase party packs where you can gather in your pod and plan your in-home celebration as you tune into Main Event Live. To read more about these party pack which need to be purchased by April 23, 2021, go to www.maineventauction.com.
