February 10, 2018 – 5:00PM

We hope you will be a part of Catching Dreams, the 33rd Annual SchoolPower Dinner Dance, on February 10, 2018 at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel. It’s an incredible evening of dining, dancing and bidding on amazing silent and live auction items, all to help realize the dreams of Laguna Beach students. Last year’s event grossed $300,000 for Laguna Beach schools to support the new social and emotional support team, smaller class sizes (K-3), music, performing arts, athletics, STEM, teacher grants, and more.

How to get involved:


Attend the event by contributing $1500 or more to our yearly Community Campaign. Your contribution includes two tickets to the dinner dance, as well as two Laguna Locals discount cards and the ability to designate 20% of your donation to a specific grade level, program, PTA, or teacher. Donate today.

Your generous contribution will be viewed by over 300 guests at the spectacular Ritz-Carlton and by supporters participating via mobile bidding from anywhere in the world. Donors also receive recognition in our event program, our year-end Thank You spread in Laguna Beach Magazine and our e-newsletters to LBUSD families. Donate items or services.


Mobile bidding is accessible worldwide to all supporters who wish to participate in the auction, but cannot attend the event. Please register now for mobile bidding.


Guests attending the dinner dance will be asked to raise their paddles to fund a special initiative for LBUSD. If you are not attending, but would like to give your support, your online donation will help achieve the goal. Donate now.


An event of this magnitude is only made possible by the help of many dedicated volunteers. If you would like to donate your time, please let us know.
