You’ll be greeted upon check-in with a refreshing mint julep, served a delicious dinner at your table with your friends, and be in for an all-around good time. And let us not forget about the auctions! We’ll be hosting a silent auction as well as a live auction, complete with many excellent items on which you can outbid your friends.

2014 School-Force Annual Fundraiser Co-Chairs:
Business Donations Team - Email Barbara Fetterly
1) The Business Donations team needs 3 people per school (or more!) to help solicit businesses for donations. If you have the knack for selling or have some creative ideas for fantastic auction items, this is the job for you. We make it as turnkey and easy as possible for these team members to focus their efforts on requesting donations.
2) Are you a local business owner that can donate items to the auction, sponsor part of the event, or underwrite some costs? Let us know! We need your support.
Volunteers - Email Renee Evans or Jennifer Zimmermann
3) In addition to specific volunteer needs from each school, we have areas of the event that need committee heads and other jobs that need to be filled. Contact us for more information!
School-Force’s Annual Fundraiser is a fun community-wide event sponsored by School-Force, the Belmont-Redwood Shores Public Education Foundation. The purpose of the Annual Fundraiser is to bring together people from our community at a fun event to raise money to fund valuable staff and programs at each of our seven schools. Guests enjoy food, dancing and music and can bid on a variety of raffle prizes contributed by both local businesses and community members. The School-Force Annual Fundraiser 2013 – Mardi Gras Madness – was held last year at the College of San Mateo on Saturday March 9th, 2013 and a fun time was had by the approximately 500 people attending the event! Mardi Gras Madness at the College of San Mateo lived up to its promises of an evening of revelry. There was food and live music, a live and silent auction, raffle, and opportunities to win a spot in the poker tournament, or the chance to play in the “First Annual School-Force Golf Tournament!” The community-building event raised much-needed funds for our public schools. Many thanks to all of the MANY volunteers FROM EVERY SCHOOL who helped out, and the families and businesses who donated prizes and sponsored the event. We couldn’t have done it without you!
