The Deck at the Pacific Edge Hotel played host to SchoolPower’s business appreciation party on May 3, giving the education foundation the opportunity to thank supporters and directory advertisers.
The guests included longtime supporters Greg and Barbara MacGillivray, Laurie Alter of Tuvalu, and Jack Jakosky of Boat Canyon Shopping Center. SchoolPower’s Business Alliance, whose members make significant annual financial contributions, was well represented by David and Kerry Rubel of Fredric H. Rubel Jewelers, Steve Baker of Steve Baker Productions, and Bill Tremper of Pacific Edge Hotel.
“We are so grateful for Pacific Edge’s generosity in helping us celebrate and thank the community of business supporters who play such an important role in our fundraising efforts for Laguna schools,” said directory chair Melissa Cavanaugh, who made a point of personally thanking each and every advertiser present.
The festivities culminated with the auctioning off of the directory’s back and inside cover ad spaces for a record $8,100, with Hobie/Tuvalu, Boat Canyon Shopping Center and Pacific Edge Hotel winning the spots.
The deadline for directory advertising has been extended to May 30. For more information, go to www.lbschoolpower.org or call 949-494-6811.
