Spring Fling and Auction night
SAVE THE DATE: Saturday, May 18th is the date for this year’s annual Spring Fling and Auction! Those of you that attended last year will testify to the fact that this adults-only event is not to be missed. This year the event is at St. Marks Golf Club in San Marcos and we are proud to welcome back our title sponsor from last year, Larrabee Albi Coker! As always, proceeds from this event and auction help us provide programs and services that benefit all students. More details about this year’s event will be announced in the coming weeks but for now, start lining up those babysitters! And if you work for a business or own a business that would benefit from exposure to some of our Carrillo families, consider becoming a sponsor! We have event sponsorship opportunities at a variety of levels – large and small – and it is a great chance to meet and network with other parents. For more info, email Kathy at
