Join the Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF) for a spectacular evening under the stars while supporting local schools as Donna Salof presents the Annual Coronado Schools Foundation Gala & Benefit Auction, with proceeds benefitting Coronado’s public schools through CSF. This year’s extravaganza will be held on Saturday, October 28, beginning at 5 pm on the Southpointe Lawn at the Hotel del Coronado before heading into the stunning Southpointe Ballroom.
Thank you to returning event chair and title sponsor Donna Salof, who has helped bring this event to life for the past seven years. Donna’s generosity has consistently impacted our schools and community. Another special thanks goes to Harold Rapoza, President & GM at the Hotel del Coronado and Hilton Hotels, who provides extraordinary support for Coronado schools and helps co-host the Gala each year.
“We are pleased and proud to partner once again with Donna Salof and the Hotel del Coronado to benefit the 3,000+ students that attend Coronado public schools. We truly couldn’t do it without them,” says Michelle Gilmore, CSF President & CEO. “CUSD has been able to maintain a competitive edge in STEM and Arts as a direct result of generous donations from community members and local businesses like these.”
The focus of this year’s Gala is to raise funds to support and enhance iLabs at Village Elementary and Silver Strand, the Robotics Team at Coronado Middle School, and the new Broadcasting Studio at Coronado High School. CSF’s mission is to provide exceptional learning experiences for all Coronado Unified School District students with the generous support of our community.
Details on the evening, as well as the theme, will be announced in late August. The popular Online Auction will launch in early October and remain open for bidding until after the event, offering more than 300 unique items, including great local deals and steals. Donations welcome!
CSF is always looking for new business partners or community sponsors to make this event a success for our students!
