Why the Ed! Gala?

The Ed! Gala is the El Segundo Ed!ucation Foundation's main fundraiser of the year. This event alone raises almost 20% of the total yearly grant to the El Segundo Unified School District and is essential to the funding Ed! can provide. Ed! is the only El Segundo non-profit 501(c)(3) that can bridge the financial gap between programs the state can fund and the education El Segundo students need to have a complete and competitive education. Visit the Ed! website to learn more:

Join us in honoring the true meaning of "Dedication to Education" at the Ed! Gala and ensure we achieve our pledge of $1.5million to ESUSD!
