Stars to Shine This Saturday Night at Tribute to the Stars’ Sparkling New Venue

Tribute to the Stars returns to Culver City this Saturday, May 5 at an exciting new location, with all the great food, music, fun and inspiration you’ve come to expect. After a successful run at Sony Pictures Entertainment and The Culver Studios, the Culver City Education Foundation (CCEF) is bringing this year’s Tribute to the Stars to Unici Casa, one of Culver City’s most talked about event spaces.

CCEF’s spectacular annual fundraising gala brings our community together to honor some of the “stars” who help bring a world class education to CCUSD students. And the evening raises money to support programs in every Culver City school, including supporting STEM education for every CCUSD student.

This year’s honorees, 2018’s “stars” of our education community, include: Culver Pride Awardee Mark Stevens—founder of Silicon Valley’s S-Cubed (and Culver City High School graduate), Teacher of the Year Debby Ishii (La Ballona), Classified Employee of the Year Erika Arredondo (Farragut) and Shining Star Leslie Adler (former CCEF Executive Director from 2009 to 2017.)

The evening also offers a chance for our community to meet new CCEF Executive Director Melanie Mack.

The evening will also showcase an assortment of tastes from 3 savory restaurants and 3 delectable sweet shops, all from Culver City’s best. Let’s not forget the hosted bar! All proceeds from this event provide crucial support to all students and teachers of CCUSD.

Sat, May 5, 2018; 6:30 PM – 10:30 PM
Unici Casa 9461 Jefferson Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232
