School-Force’s Annual Fundraiser

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!
