“The annual fundraiser helps both Zephyr Cove Elementary School and George Whittell High School be successful,” said Principal Crespin Esquivel of George Whittell High School.

Last year’s event raised almost $40,000 contributing laptops, athletic equipment, language software, library books, printers, hard drives, engineering books, cultural assemblies, science fair support, art and culinary supplies and more.

“The new touch screen in our class aides learning and is very interactive for the students,” said third grade teacher Susan Desrosiers.

The event is also looking for donations for live and silent auctions, said Spring Auction event planner Tara Addeo.
