Annual Teacher Appreciation Fundraiser

MOVED to March 16, 2023, at 4:00 - 6:00 PM
JettyWave Swell Lounge, 155 Broadway, Half Moon Bay, CA 94019

Join us in supporting Coastside teachers! Every year, teachers have to pay for supplies to get them thru the school year. Right about now they are hundreds and even thousands into their own pockets, ensuring our Coastside kids have projects and activities that stimulate and educate. We can help them by providing $100 in cash plus a $20 Hassett ACE Hardware gift card to get their much-needed supplies. Let's show the teachers how much we appreciate them!!

Last year we had a record-breaking 147 teachers apply for donations! Unfortunately, we could not match the goal and could only fund 95 of them. We hope this year, you can help us get 150 teachers funded!
