Mark your calendars for upcoming dates:                              

A message from Coronado Arts Education Foundation Next Saturday, May 13th, the Coronado Arts Education Foundation is hosting “A Taste of the Arts” fundraising event on the campus of Coronado High School.  This is an entirely new event, unlike the galas that our Foundation has hosted in past years.  This event is intended to give attendees the experience of what it feels like to be a CoSA student for a day.  Each guest will have the opportunity to choose two different “CoSA experiences” in which to participate - and afterwards will enjoy a Hawaiian Luau dinner along with entertainment and a silent and live auction.  The entertainment will be Ron’s Garage Band as well as some hula dancers!!  I have attached a flyer with more information and you may click here  to purchase tickets.

As the current president of the Coronado Arts Education Foundation, I am extending this invitation to you in hopes that you will be able to attend this new and one-of-a-kind event!  Please feel free to forward this information to anyone else that you think might be interested in attending the event and supporting CoSA and other arts education experiences throughout CUSD.

Thanks so much and I hope to see many of you at the event next Saturday!


Emily Bosworth

President, Coronado Arts Education Foundation
