LCFEF Gala 2020, Back to the 20s

Back to the 20s

Dear La Cañada Community,

The La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation recognizes the public health risks the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) poses in large public gatherings, and is taking preventative steps to help protect our community by canceling the 29th annual Gala scheduled for March 21.

The LCFEF leadership team made this difficult decision out of concern for the health and safety of our La Cañada friends, neighbors, and sponsors, and in concert with precautions being taken by LCUSD and the greater Los Angeles County public health agencies. We understand that this change may cause great inconvenience for you, and we are sincerely sorry. We are hopeful that by playing a role in raising consciousness and taking appropriate protective measures, we will support the World Health Organization and other agencies in working together across communities to stop this threat.

The District continues to place our children’s health as its top priority, and our schools are proactively taking measures to clean and disinfect surfaces on our campuses, restrict some travel, and plan for possible distance learning. We believe that our decision supports the District’s concerns for the health and safety of our community, and outweighs the financial loss the Foundation will suffer this year because of our decision to cancel the gala.

Registered guests may convert the cost of the tickets into a donation to help us reach our annual goal. Your donation will then become 100% tax deductible Otherwise, if you desire a refund, please contact our office by emailing, or calling us at 818-952-4268.

We plan to hold an online auction at 9 a.m. on March 21, and ask for your continued support of the Foundation through this opportunity. For the link to the Online Auction Page, please click here. 

A link will be sent to you on Saturday, March 21st, and posted on this website to register your credit card in bidpal and to start bidding on over 400 wonderful items. Everyone can participate so please spread the word! Please note that you must have a credit card to bid online.
