Dear PBE Families, Friends, & Community,

This year Pacific Beach Elementary School celebrates 70 years on Tourmaline Street! It’s been 94 years since PBE opened its doors to our community’s children. It is with great pleasure that we announce Pacific Beach Elementary School’s 2020 fundraiser: ​Down & Derby!​ The Online Auction will run from ​March 16-23, 2020​. ​ The Live and Silent Auctions will take place at the Down & Derby Soirée on ​Friday, May 1, 2020​ from 6:00-11:00 pm at Marina Village.

The Down & Derby Soirée is our biggest fundraiser and directly impacts all students at Pacific Beach Elementary School. In years past, community support has enabled our parent-teacher organization, Friends of Pacific Beach Elementary (FOPBE), to provide valuable, ​non-district funded​ programs, including:

★ San Diego Youth Science classes ★ D3 Garden classes ★ RMC Music classes TK-3 ★ Project Kids Art - art enrichment curriculum ★ YMCA enrichment PE and playground facilitators ★ Missoula Children’s Theatre ★ Halloween Carnival ★ Penguin Dash ★ Family Movie Night ★ Jogging Club ★ PBE Friendship Garden ★ Science Night ★ Family Math Night ★ Web-based literacy programs ★ Discretionary funds for all teachers ★ Field trip buses ★ Library books & classroom subscriptions ★ Playground equipment...and more!

A successful auction is essential to FOPBE’s annual fundraising budget and, ultimately, our school. You can partner with FOPBE by making a ​donation​ of a gift certificate, merchandise, or services to be included in the auction. Another way to offer support is by ​sponsorship ​of the event at large or underwriting​ of a specific event expense. All contributions are due to school no later than ​March 11, 2020​.

As we ask for your support, we pledge to shine light on and promote your business. Your donation will be highlighted on our heavily visited auction website. Certain financial contributions will also be recognized with a banner on the corner of Turquoise and Fanuel, at the Down & Derby Soirée, and in the weekly FOPBE emails. Please accept our gratitude and thanks in advance for your support and sponsorship.
