2021 CSF Telethon ...

Students Jack and Grace Elardo decorated the front lawn of Village Elementary in honor of this year’s Telethon. All proceeds of Jack & Grace’s “Pop Up Stands” go to Coronado Schools Foundation.

It’s a win-win! Exciting games, enticing incentives, and local celeb appearances, all to raise funds for arts enrichment and STEM in Coronado schools…a Coronado tradition like no other, the 34th Annual Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF) Telethon is coming to your home tonight at 5pm. Watch LIVE at csfkids.org/telethon!

Not sure what to serve for dinner? High Tide Bottle Shop & Kitchen is donating 15% of all food proceeds of the day to CSF. Be sure to order soon at HighTideCoronado.com, or call 619-435-1380 and mention “CSF” when you order.

If you’re hungry for new toys, be sure to buy a raffle ticket for the brand-new Icon Six-Seater Golf Cart, valued at $14,000, or enter the drawings to win a new Electra bike from Holland’s Bikes, or a Storm Blade foam surf board from Emerald City. If you’re looking for a fun night away, check out the first-ever Balcony Bash Spring Soiree at Loews Coronado Bay Resort on Friday, May 7…socially-distanced of course! The first 40 people to donate $1,000 or more to CSF—between now and March 25--will enjoy an overnight stay at the Loews and a balcony party featuring the live music of local musicians as well as a mini-auction and other frolicky festivities.

Hosts Coronado City Councilmen Casey Tanaka and Bill Sandke, Coronado School Board Member Stacy Keszei, and Coronado Sign Guy, Stefan Freeman, along with four Coronado High School seniors—Jenevieve Joseph, Noah Wahamaki, Samantha Lorr, and Amelia Hawley—are excited to lead contestants through the spirited games to see which players topple their competition. Don’t forget to check out the special Senior Tribute Video in the last hour of the Telethon, 8pm-9pm.

The all-new games include “Are You Smarter than a Voyager?” from Silver Strand Elementary, “Invention Convention” from Coronado Village Elementary, “The Masked Student” from CMS Advanced Performing Arts and “Tiki Time” from Coronado High School. You’ll also get the chance to check out the amazing Lego-building skills of Coronado students in a jaw-dropping engineering competition.

About Coronado Schools Foundation

The Coronado School’s Foundation is a community driven fundraising organization, which supplements state funding for 2 pathways in the public schools of Coronado Unified School District: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) and Arts. Since its’ founding in 1982, CSF has provided a means for parents, community members and local businesses to invest in superior public education for their children in the Coronado Unified School District. Since that time, CSF has grown into a million-dollar commitment to maintain rigorous academics and a breadth of educational experiences from kindergarten through high school. Funds raised by CSF pay for teachers and other educators whose positions the state of California does not fund or require but our parents and educators consider necessary for a quality education.
