LPSF was excited to hand Crocker Riverside Elementary School a check for over $10,000 last night at their PTA meeting! These funds were raised via several family-hosted parties throughout the school year. Thank you to all the families who coordinated BBBB, Margaritaville, Cornhole Cup, Blind Wine, and the Rombauer Wine Dinner and working hard to support enrichment programs at the school!
Do you have an innovative idea for your school? Do you have a school activity or project that needs additional funding? LPSF is excited to roll out our 2nd Mini-Grant Competition! Simply go to our website to learn more and apply! Last year we supported programs from drama events, to school publications, to afterschool classes...how can we help you?

Who sends an 82 year old guy down to Baja via San Diego to catch fresh Ahi for the upcoming Rombaur Wine Pairing Dinner Fundraiser for Crocker/Riverside PTA? The Land Park Schools Foundation does! Jim Sullivan's catch will be featured along with other fantastic dishes at this weekend's sold-out event.
