SchoolPower’s annual appreciation party for its business supporters featured a spirited bidding war for coveted cover spots of the organization’s 2016-17 student directory.
Led by Vice President Taylor Pillsbury, the auction raised $13,500 thanks to bidding by Marcus Skenderian, representing Surterre Properties; Mark Christy, representing Hobie; and Jack Jakosky, of Boat Canyon Shopping Center. The directory provides a valuable source of revenue for all four Laguna Beach public schools.
Known as “the best read book in town,” the directory is distributed to 2,000 families in the school district each fall.
“There is no better investment we can make than in the education of our children and I’m just grateful that we can be a small part of helping SchoolPower lead the charge,” said Christy, who hosted the event at the newly renovated resort, The Ranch, Laguna Beach.
The resort is also underwriting the 3 Clubs Barefoot Canyon Classic on Monday, May 16, 3-6:30 p.m.; $250 per golfer, $80 for dinner only. All golf tournament proceeds benefit SchoolPower.
