SchoolPower sets fundraiser
SchoolPower will host its 26th annual Dinner Dance at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 29 at the Montage Laguna Beach.
This year's theme, "Diamonds in the Sand," selected by event chairs Kim Ressler, Melissa Cavanaugh and Kristin Bunn, is meant to embody all that is elegant and sophisticated about Laguna Beach, while also Laguna's public schools.
The evening will include delicious food and wine, a live performance by local band The F-Jams and a live auction, featuring items such as a private suite for the upcoming U2 concert at Angels Stadium, a Pelican Hill weekend getaway for four; and a private 90-foot yacht for the day to Catalina hosted by HOM Real Estate Group.
The event raised $180,000 for Laguna's schools last year, which helps support important programs like teacher innovations, foreign language, music and the arts and class size reduction.
Raffle tickets are $100, and includes a pouch with a pair of cubic zirconium earrings in white sand, and a chance to win the grand prize of a diamond necklace and matching earrings from Rubels Jewelers, valued at $3000. RSVP by Jan. 8. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit http://www.lbschoolpower.org or call (949) 494-6811.
