Carlsbad, CA – The Carlsbad Educational Foundation (CEF) is proud to present its third annual Gala to Benefit Students on May 18, 2024.

The evening’s highlight will be the much-anticipated performance by Yachtley Crew, acclaimed as ‘The Titans of Soft Rock’ & the nation’s leading yacht rock band. This seven-piece ensemble will be festivly attired in nautical-themed suits and captain’s hats, delighting attendees with chart-topping hits from the late ‘70s to the early ‘80s, including classics such as Toto’s “Africa,” Looking Glass’ “Brandy,” and Rupert Holmes’ “Escape (The Piña Colada Song)”.

The gala, hosted at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa, will bring together community members, philanthropists, & education supporters. A welcome reception, dinner and drinks, silent and live auction are also part of the evening’s entertainment. Previous events have achieved fundraising success, generating over $300,000.

“We are thrilled to host our third annual Gala to Benefit Students and welcome the epic Yachtley Crew to our event,” said Carlsbad Educational Foundation CEO Laura Pitts. “It’s imperative that we continue to raise funds to support the educational endeavors of our students, providing them with invaluable opportunities to excel and thrive. Together, we are making a significant difference in the lives of our students and the future of our community.”

Funds raised will directly support more than 40 programs in music, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, Math), and educational innovation both inside and outside the classroom. These initiatives have a profound impact on the lives of over 11,000 Carlsbad students in grades K-12, empowering them to realize their full potential and pursue their dreams.

Tickets and tables are still available to purchase.

About Carlsbad Educational Foundation – Carlsbad Educational Foundation (CEF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 1983, to raise private support for public education and contribute to the enrichment of nearly 11,000 students in the Carlsbad Unified School District. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded nearly $15 million to Carlsbad public schools, primarily for science, technology, and music – programs that would not be possible in California’s current school funding environment. 100% of donations go directly to support the Carlsbad Unified School District because CEF’s operating expenses are covered by student enrichment programs and Kids Care, a comprehensive before and after-school K-5 childcare program.
