The Madera Elementary Foundation cordially invites you to our annual fundraiser gala. This year our theme is “An Evening in Paris” so break out your beret and your fancy French fashion! Enjoy dinner, dancing, and drinks with friends while supporting a good cause…our children.

Proceeds from the event go towards funding garden, music, reading support, field trips, classroom supplies, assemblies, and more.

Tickets are on sale Friday, February 1st! Prices are $35 per person until February 28th, $45 in March, and $55 at the door.

Need childcare?

We got you covered! For ONLY $25 per child our Gold Sponsor, El Cerrito Martial Arts, will provide dinner and fun activities at their facility (10400 San Pablo Avenue, El Cerrito).
