March 1:  San Carlos Spring Fling, Fiesta Hall

spring fling 2014

Spring Fling, organized by the  San Carlos Education Foundation, with support from its PTA/PRTs is a one-of-a-kind auction gala that brings together people all over the community to raise money for all 7 of San Carlos public schools.  The 2014 Spring Fling, “Peace, Love and Education,” is a one-of-a-kind auction gala to be held on March 1, 2014. Drawing over 1000 guests, Spring Fling was created to develop a San Carlos community event that leverages the resources of all seven of its district schools in order to fund valuable programs for its students and teachers. The success of Spring Fling is a direct result of the donations of cash, auction items, and goods and services from donors in the community.  At last year’s Spring Fling, $615,000 was raised for the seven public schools in San Carlos serving over 3,400 students.

Tickets: $195 per person, available online (see Info below)
