The Pacific Ocean provided the backdrop for SchoolPower’s recent annual business appreciation party, hosted by The Deck and Pacific Edge Hotel.
Supporters of SchoolPower, Laguna Beach’s non-profit education foundation, dined on food prepared by Chef Rainer Schwarz and received President Tom Motherway’s appreciation. “Your generosity and support not only means excellent schools for Laguna Beach kids, but makes our town the wonderful community that it is,” Motherway said.
Trustee Taylor Pillsbury, acting as auctioneer, raised $12,500 in bids among advertisers vying for the coveted covers of next year’s student directory. Winning bids went to Mark Christy, co-owner of The Ranch at Laguna Beach and Hobie and Tuvalu shops, and Jack Jakosky of Boat Canyon Shopping Center.
Altogether, advertisers pledged $66,000 for space in the directory, “the best read book in town,” distributed to the district’s 2,000 families. Ad space remains available until June 12. Visit lbschoolpower.org or call 949 494-6811 for more information.
