Spotlight on Education – Peninsula Education Major Donors Reception 

The Rolling Hills private residence.

On June 4, Peninsula Education Foundation (PEF) recognized the Major Donors who had given $2,500+ during the 2021-22 school year. These school families, alumni, corporate sponsors and real estate donors generously supported students at all 17 Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District (PVPUSD) schools. Their donations are essential for providing students a strong academic environment. Because of their generous support the PEF reached its campaign goal of $2.1 million for the PVPUSD. Laura Hughes, PEF’s Acting Executive Director, and Jen Mentesana, PEF President, presented a check to Dr. Alex Cherniss, Superintendent of PVPUSD. To learn more visit
