Virtual Paddle Raise

Our schools are facing a devastating fiscal future and we need our community’s help. Please consider raising your hand high for education at our VIRTUAL PADDLE RAISE at bit.ly/2YsfUsG. Your donations directly impact all students at 17 Palos Verdes Peninsula public schools. Thanks to your generosity we can continue to promote academic excellence, champion innovation and impact the future of our children.

Main Event Online Auction: May 9 – 15

Main Event Online Auction: May 9 – 15

As you know, we had to cancel the Main Event Gala scheduled for this weekend. So we decided to pivot, since our schools and students are still relying on the support they receive through the proceeds of this event. New this year, we will be featuring over 100 bottles of 90+ point wine and spirits at our online auction. Normally we hold our wine auction at the Gala, but now you will be able to bid on wine in the comfort of your own home.

The online auction goes live this Saturday, May 9 at 8 am at www.maineventauction.com and closes on May 15 at 9:30 pm.In addition to wine, you will find other items to bid on including exclusive experiences, vacation packages, restaurant gift certificates, pet services, health and beauty packages, jewelry and more.

Please take a look at our auction catalog that features specially curated wine from Napa, Santa Barbara, France and Italy. Click HERE to view our auction catalog!

We are thankful for the many local restaurants that support our students and PVPUSD schools throughout the year. So now in this time of the COVID-19 crisis, it is our turn to support them more than ever. Just because you can’t eat at your favorite restaurant doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy that restaurant’s food! Most of the restaurants are providing specials and available for curbside pick up or home delivery. Please click on their link and support these local restaurants.
