Peninsula Education – Main Event takes Guests for a ride

A new, red Ferrari (for a weekend) donated by the newly opened Ferrari South Bay in Torrance and a new Lexus RX 350 (to keep) from Toyota were among the auction and raffle highlights at the Peninsula Education Foundation Main Event held May 7th at the Terranea Resort Grand Ballroom. Over 500 guests attended, many in costumes keeping with the Saturday Night Live theme and was orchestrated by a committee headed by foundation president Roma Mistry. The Foundation’s Main Event gala helps the organization reach its $3.4 million goal for this school year. This funding maintains teachers, counselors, college advisors, music, library aides and STEM programs. This year’s event was a great success due to the generous sponsorships of Toyota Motor Sales, Terranea Resort, Del Amo Fashion Center, American Airlines and Micato Safaris.
