Dinner Dance

For the past 35 years, SchoolPower supporters have gathered to enjoy cocktails, dinner and dancing with the purpose of raising funds to support a district-led initiative. Cumulatively, these annual galas have raised millions and helped establish a wide range of enhancements for Laguna schools, including social emotional support services, a high school mentorship program, coding and digital literacy curriculum, and more. Save the date for the 36th Annual SchoolPower Gala, on March 19, 2022 at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel.

Dodgeball Tournament

SchoolPower’s widely popular and intensely competitive Dodgeball Tournament brings together the entire community in the spirit of silliness and competition. Over 500 players, coaches, referees, scorekeepers and organizers rally each year to raise funds for our schools, and each champion team wins $500 in prize money to designate to a teacher or school program of their choice. We are hoping to bring back Dodgeball for 2021-2022!

3 Clubs Barefoot Canyon Classic

Huge thanks to our friends at Hobie and The Ranch for hosting us for the 5th Annual Three Clubs Barefoot Canyon Classic in 2021. We hope to once again kick off our shoes and hit the course in 2022–date to come!

This sure ain’t your father’s golf tourney! It’s a day of fun that sells out in moments and we know you won’t want to miss the next one.

Chef Challenge

Generously sponsored by Cary and Suzanne Redfearn of Lumberyard, this casual night out with friends, fellow parents and SchoolPower supporters is a hit year after year. Guests enjoy a three-course dinner, selected by the principals of the four Laguna schools and prepared by Lumberyard chefs, then vote for their favorite dishes. It’s a duel for the Golden Spatula! We hope to reschedule Chef Challenge XI for the 2021-2022 school year. Date to be announced.
