The Peninsula Education Foundation’s 35th annual Main Event gala fundraiser will be held Saturday, May 13 at Terranea Resort, with a theme of “Ibiza En Blanco.” Guests will feel like they’ve been whisked off to the coast of Spain to enjoy the island of Ibiza, a press release said.

The highlight of the evening will be student musical, dance, and robotics performances to showcase the very people PEF supports in the district.

The event will include the silent and live auctions as well as an array of collectible wines, travel experiences, concert tickets and the chance to win a Lexus RX 450h or a year of dining at Terranea’s Catalina Kitchen.

“We are so excited to feature our own PV parent and Grammy Award Nominee music producer starRo, who will be performing the musical entertainment and getting the dance party started for the evening,” said event co-chairs Julia Whitley and Michael Larson of SEJ Event Productions in the release.

The highlight of the evening will be the infamous live auction with packages, including an exclusive family resort membership to Terranea Resort, a Maserati Quattroporte for a weekend paired with a private Strand House wine dinner and Beach House hotel stay, Ed Sheeran concert tickets with seating for six in a Staples Center luxury suite, an exotic vacation via private advanced air flight, membership to the Portuguese Bend Beach Club, jewelry from Medawar Fine Jewelers, private dinners from renowned local chefs Michael Shafer of The Depot, Robert Bell and owner Michael Franks of Chez Melange, and more.
