On Friday, May 6, the RSF Education Foundation held its annual art auction, A Creative Affair, at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. The sold-out event was attended by over 150 guests. The annual fundraiser auctions art projects created by Rowe students, as well as many other items donated by parents, local businesses and RSFEF community partners, such as vacation homes, trips, camps summer, unique experiences and golf outings. This year’s highly successful event raised over $150,000.
The RSFEF wholeheartedly thanks all the volunteers and donors who supported the event, and expresses its gratitude to the event chairs, Paige Pennock and Fatima Grismer, both parents of Rowe, for their dedication and time!
The 2021-2022 RSFEF has pledged to raise $800,000 for the district. RSFEF’s annual fundraising provides approximately 7% of the district’s operating budget and is the district’s second largest source of revenue after property taxes. The annual RSFEF grant helps fund district individualized instruction, enrichment offerings, and specialist teachers with advanced credentials for all K-8 students.
