SchoolPower celebrated the businesses that support our schools at the Business Appreciation party on May 17, generously hosted by Skyloft.

Student Directory Advertisers, Business Alliance members and Real Estate Honor Roll members enjoyed food and drinks while mingling with LBUSD leadership and SchoolPower volunteers.

SchoolPower Past President Amy Kramer led the auction for coveted Directory cover spots. Mark Christy secured two spots for Hobie and The Ranch at Laguna Beach, while Jack Jakosky of Boat Canyon Shopping Center won the inside cover.

Executive Director Robin Rounaghi commended the group of local business people who understand the importance of investing in our students and community. “We couldn’t do it without your generous support – a true win/win for your businesses and our schools!”

SchoolPower contributed over $900,000 to the four Laguna Beach public schools last year, funding music, arts, teacher grants, class size reduction, and more.
