SIP for our Schools 2020 is a success


Thank you to everyone who participated in our first-ever virtual fundraiser/wine tasting event on September 26th.

Over 375 households tuned in virtually to enjoy a live streamed program that included an expert-led wine tasting adventure, surprise visits from celebrity guests, an exciting silent auction, and highlights of CCEF’s work to support valuable programs at every Culver City school. Following the main program, those guests who had purchased tickets to our Chef’s Table program watched cooking demonstrations by three local award-winning chefs and participated in a live Q&A with the chefs.

The event exceeded our fundraising goal and had more than twice the attendees we expected. We are grateful to those who were able to bid on auction items as well as the many who made donations during and right after the program. All contributions will help CCEF continue to fund programs benefiting over 7,000 students each year!

For those of you who missed the event, or those who would like to relive the experience, you can watch a recording of the event here:

Our appreciation to all who supported this endeavor including CCUSD leadership and staff, those who donated auction items and everyone who attended. Special thanks to our generous event sponsors, and the fantastic supporters who went the extra mile to make the event such a success!
