Spirit of Excellence Gala

The 10th Anniversary Spirit of Excellence Gala & Auction was held on October 5, 2019, at Kia Motors headquarters in Irvine.  This is one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year and brings the community together to honor distinguished alumni of the Irvine Unified School District (IUSD) and raise funds for Irvine classrooms. The evening was a shining example of the difference we can make when we work together as a community. Proceeds directly benefit local public schools and more than 35,000 students.

We thank you for your interest in attending OC STEAM Fest. Due to new state guidance regarding events larger than 250 people, we regretfully have decided to postpone OC STEAM Fest on April 25. It is always our top priority to protect our community’s health and well-being and we could not proceed with this event if it presents even the smallest potential of putting families at risk. We are working to secure a new event date later this year, and will provide an update once confirmed.

For questions, please contact info@ipsf.net.

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at OC STEAM Fest in the future.
