Valley of Discovery Education Foundation “Discover The Taste” fundraiser-This Saturday

Valley of Discovery Education Foundation
 Saturday February 2nd, 2013 at 6:30 pm at the San Marcos Civic Center.  Tickets are $45
 “Discover The Taste” is the major fundraiser for the Valley of Discovery Education Foundation – a non profit that provides financial services to many of the schools in the San Marcos Unified School District 100% free.   (If you’ve ever donated to SEES then you made your check out to VDEF.) Many of the businesses in San Marcos and San Elijo Hills are donating prizes for our silent auction including:  photography packages, a year to The Kitchen Skinny, a gourmet dinner or cooking class, golf packages at Shadowridge, and a lot more.  We also have what we’re assured is the only baseball (since he’s a football player) LaDainian Tomlinson has ever signed.  There will be music, food, local wine, and local beer from Stumblefoot Brewery here in San Marcos.  This fundraiser basically pays for all of the costs VDEF covers for half of the schools in San Marcos (elementary, middle, and high schools) for the entire year.

Discover the Taste Valley of Discovery Education Foundation Fundraiser

VDEF Annual Fundraiser
When a SEES parent writes a check to VDEF-SEES, VDEF stands for Valley of Discovery Education Foundation. VDEF serves as our not-for profit entity as it does for several schools throughout SMUSD. On Saturday, January 28th at 7:00 pm VDEF will hold its annual fundraiser to raise money for its beneficiary schools and its general operating expenses.  This year the theme is “Discover the Taste” and will include an evening of tasting fine wines from around the world, hosted by PRP Wine International. There will also an olive oil taste and Pitch Michael will perform music. It’s a fun community event where lots of local supporters of education come together. The cost is $45 per person and SEES will receive $25 of each ticket sold. Adults 21 and over only, please. For more information contact Kathy Gallagher at 760-500-5487.
