Schoolpower’s student directory raised $76,000 in advertising last year and supporters were treated to an appreciation dinner at Pacific Edge Hotel.

The event earlier in the month also honored business alliance and new real estate honor roll sponsors, which contributed $50,000 for the schools this year.

“Laguna’s businesses are unfailingly supportive of our local schools,” said SchoolPower President Lynn Gregory, “and SchoolPower is grateful to every one of them.”

Trustee Taylor Pillsbury, acting as auctioneer for ad spaces in the

2014-15 directory’s back and inside covers, orchestrated bidding that brought in $13,600. Jack Jakosky of Boat Canyon Shopping Center and Mark Christy of Hobie/Tuvalu and The Ranch at Laguna Beach won the prized spots.

The deadline to advertise in this year’s book is May 30. For more info: go to www.lbschoolpower.org or call 494-6811.
