2022 IPSF GALA 426

Spirit of Excellence Gala

On Saturday, March 5, 2022, generous supporters of the Irvine Public Schools Foundation (IPSF) gathered for the 25th Anniversary Spirit of Excellence Gala at the Great Park’s Hanger 244 in Irvine. The elegant celebration welcomed a mix of guests including civic and business leaders as well as individual community members and raised over $1 Million to fund critical programs and classroom support for Irvine Unified School District (IUSD).

The Spirit of Excellence Gala is the most highly anticipated event of the year and brings the community together to raise funds for Irvine public schools and students. When students have opportunities to think big and follow their dreams, amazing things can happen. The evening is a shining example of the difference we can make when we work together as a community in support of educational excellence. Thank you to the incredible volunteers who make our work possible!
