Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation Gala to Benefit Educational Program​

Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation presents the Discovery Gala from 6 to 9 p.m. August 29 at the Westin Carlsbad Resort & Spa.  Proceeds from the event will benefit the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation’s award-winning educational program which teaches elementary school students  and middle school about responsible and balanced use of the watershed.

 

Called the Academy of Environmental Stewardship, the program educated 10,000 students during the 2019-2020 calendar year.  The students are from a record-breaking thirteen school districts including Carlsbad, Cardiff, Chula Vista, Del Mar, Encinitas, Escondido, Fallbrook, Oceanside, San Diego, San Marcos, Valley Center-Pauma and Vista.  The program features hands-on, interactive programs for students from  kindergarten through fourth-grades and seventh grade.     

 

“Our programs educate students about nature in nature cultivating a future generation of environmental stewards.  We have outdoor classrooms that allow the lessons to be full of movement and interaction,” stated Cierra Russo, Director of Education for the Foundation.  “Programs are grade specifically designed so students learn something different each year.”

 

With help from the community attending the gala, which is the year’s biggest fundraiser, the Foundation is hoping to grow the program to 11,000 students during the 2020-2021 school year.

 

“We continually look for ways to assist school districts so their students can attend the Academy,” noted Lisa Rodman, CEO of the Foundation.   “Our fundraising efforts help to make the program possible for school districts across San Diego County.”

 

The theme of this year’s gala is Grease ~ Lagoon is the Word 

 

Attendees will enjoy a fun carnival beginning with a sock hop diner food inspired menu.

 

Festivities also include a 100-item silent auction, a live auction with one-of-a-kind items and opportunity style drawings for casino winnings. 

 

For an additional fee, attendees may enter as a VIP at 5:30 p.m.    Tickets are limited and sell out quickly. 

 

This year’s gala honors Cindy and Mike Metts for their contributions to the Foundation as well as the community at large.
