For the past 40 years, the LCFEF, a non-profit organization run by parent volunteers (like us), has raised millions of dollars in support of La Canada’s chronically under-funded public schools to ensure a continued excellent public education.


The LCFEF Annual Gala is the largest fundraiser of the year for LCUSD’s public schools, raising funds that are used for class size reduction, art, music and drama teachers, guidance and/or college counselors, elementary Spanish programs and so much more. More than ever, LCUSD depend on the generosity of our community, businesses and individuals alike, to support these critical programs.


During this fun-filled evening, members and guests will also be honoring Craig and Melissa Mazin with the distinctive Spirit of Outstanding Service Award for their many years of continued service to local schools and the community.


Invitations should be in your mailboxes by the last week of January, but tickets and underwriting packages are now available on-line HERE . If you can’t attend, please consider donating something to the silent auction (e-mail us at


“We are looking forward to spending a fun night with you all Under The Big Top!”


The Ritz-Carlton is located at 900 W. Olympic Blvd. in Los Angeles.
