La Dolce Vita 2014

Scenes from LDV

Each year La Scuola holds a benefit gala to raise funds for the continued growth of the school. Funds raised at past events have enabled the school to renovate a former medical clinic into our bright, beautiful ‘sensory laboratory’ that we inhabit today; to transform a parking lot into a magical outdoor play area that sparks the imagination; to create a space where healthy meals, cooked from scratch, are shared with friends; to provide children with a dedicated art/creativity space (the Atelier); to give life to our beautiful vegetable and sensory garden under the guidance of a wonderful garden teacher and to ensure that La Scuola is a place where children learn, play, experiment and grow in a nurturing Italian immersion environment.

Last year’s Spring Gala LA DOLCE VITA was held on Saturday, March 2, 2013, at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in the Financial District of San Francisco. We raised funds for capital improvements for both the preschool and the elementary campuses and to seed a tuition assistance program, a long standing dream of the La Scuola community.

As in past years, we had over 300 guests at the event. All of our sponsors and donors will be acknowledged publicly through listings in the program, mention on our website and at the event. While we rely on our community of families to be the driving force in our fundraising efforts, we want to again thank our sponsors to last year’s Spring Gala.
