Main Event

Palos Verdes Peninsula’s biggest fundraiser of the year, Main Event, was held on May 12, 2018 at Terranea Resort. It was a Totally 80s Bash celebrating the over-the-top decade of big hair, big cars and great music! This highly anticipated event also featured an exciting live and silent auction which raised much needed funds for our PVPUSD schools. Major Donors were treated to a special pre-reception featuring Peninsula High’s own Chef Holden Dahlerbruch and Culinary Playgrounds. Guests participated in the Chef’s Challenge and voted on their favorite food prepared by Joel Miller, Executive Chef at The Wallace, Urvi Rajia, Partner/Chef at Bollywood Zaika and Jennifer Story, Executive Chef/Owner of Cookin’ Thyme. Many thanks to our Main Event Corporate sponsors: Lexus, Toyota, Terranea Resort, Kinecta, Freeman, Vector USA, Honda, KPMG, Kashi, Malaga Bank, Medawar Jewelers and Cox Communications. We appreciate your commitment to education and to the future of your children. View our 2018 Main Event Auction Catalog HERE.   View pictures from Main Event 2018...

Skechers Walk

Join us on Sunday, October 28, 2018 for the Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk. Bring your friends, family and neighbors with you as we walk the pier to pier loop between Manhattan Beach Pier and Hermosa Beach Pier (just over 3.5 miles) and help us raise funds for all of our PVPUSD schools. If you are not able to make it on the 28th, you can register as a “virtual walker” and we will get credit for your participation. Last year, PEF had close to 4,000 registered walkers which resulted in a check from Skechers for $240,000. You still have time to register for this fun and inspiring event. Go to www.skechersfriendshipwalk.com and click DONATE.  Sign up for your school’s team and remember to select Peninsula Education Foundation as the charity you support. View 2017 Skechers Walk...
