We hope you will be a part of Shine, the 35th Annual SchoolPower Dinner Dance, on February 8, 2020 at Montage Laguna Beach. It’s an incredible evening of dining, dancing and bidding on amazing silent and live auction items, all to enhance the educational experience of Laguna Beach students. Last year’s event grossed over $330,000 for Laguna Beach schools to support music, visual and performing arts, field trips, athletics, STEM, service learning, academic support, teacher grants, and more.

How to get involved:


Mobile bidding is accessible worldwide to all supporters who wish to participate in the auction, even if you cannot attend the event. View the auction catalog
