And they’re off!

The popular Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF) Online Auction, in conjunction with this year’s A Day at the Races! Gala and Benefit Auction is launching on Thursday, Oct. 10th at noon and will remain open for bidding until Monday, Oct. 28. Longtime CSF supporter, Realtor Mary Jo Morgan, is generously sponsoring this year’s Online Auction which features more than 200 unique items, including great local deals and steals. Participants can register and Bid for Kids! at All proceeds benefit Coronado Unified schools and students.

This year’s Derby extravaganza, co-chaired by Donna Salof and Angela Stanley, will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19 in the Grand Ballroom at the Hotel del Coronado with limited seating still available. In addition to the fabulous three-course derby-inspired meal and Boisset collection of wines underwritten by the Clements Group, all guests are invited to the 5 p.m. Vonderharr Paddock Reception on the newly-renovated Vista Walk. This year’s Live Auction and Raise your Paddle portion of the evening will generate funds to “Stock the iLabs” at all four Coronado Unified School District campuses. The new iLabs, short for Innovation Lab, are creative spaces that provide students the opportunity to solve real world problems and watch their projects come to life through collaboration and innovation.

Guests will end the evening dancing to the sounds of Encore Event Entertainment, courtesy of Swinerton, enjoying a “Kinzel Kocktail” from Secretariat’s Ice Luge, courtesy of Realtor Alan Kinzel, snapping photos with friends at the Isabella Avenue Dentistry photobooth and racing-themed games that are sure to entertain.

To reserve a ticket or table, to volunteer, make a donation to the auctions (Live or Online) or make a donation to sponsor a Coronado Unified staff member, please visit or call Development Coordinator Jennifer Stein at 619-437-8059, ext. 5. For those who can’t attend, donations of $500+ will have their names read aloud at the event.
