Let’s keep our kids in the winner’s circle as Donna Salof presents A Day at The Races, the annual Coronado Schools Foundation Benefit Auction, with proceeds benefitting Coronado’s public schools through the Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF). This year’s extravaganza, co-chaired by Donna Salof and Angela Stanley, will be held on Saturday, October 19, at 5 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom at the Hotel del Coronado. “CSF is pleased to partner once again with Mrs. Salof and the Hotel del Coronado to benefit the 3100 students that attend Coronado public schools. Coronado Unified School District has been able to maintain a competitive edge for a decade in STEM and Arts areas as a direct result of generous donations from community members and local businesses,” says Leanne Anderson, Director of Development. Reserved seating is now on sale, with early bird pricing in effect till Sept. 30.

The VIP pre-party will launch the nights’ events on the newly design

ed Vista Walk as guests enjoy tray passed hors d’oeuvres, complimentary libations and entertainment by Coronado High School grad, Matt Heinecke. Once inside the ballroom, experience the excitement of the racetrack without ever leaving Coronado, with chef-prepared, plated meals and Derby-themed games. Attendees will participate in a Live Auction and Paddle Raise with this year’s gala budgeted to return over $300,000 to Coronado’s public schools. The evening will feature guests on the dance floor showcasing their best moves to a fabulous nine-piece band.

The very popular Online Auction will launch Oct. 10 and remain open for bidding until Oct. 28, offering more than 300 unique items, including great local deals and steals. Donations welcome!
