Blue & Gold Fundraiser

The Blue & Gold is Vistamar's biggest fundraising event each year.  Join us for a fun night with dancing, live entertainment, casino tables, a silent and live auction.  The Blue & Gold is a great night that brings the Vistamar community together in support of the mission and vision of the School.

This year, the Blue & Gold will be held at the newly renovated Westdrift, Manhattan Beach (formerly Marriott Manhattan Beach) on May 5, 2018. Proceeds from the event's paddle raise effort, Fund-A-Need, will be directed to Moderated Tuition.

It takes a truly amazing team of staff, faculty, parent volunteers, and community supporters to make the evening a success.

You can download and print donation forms below or use the links to make ticket reservations and auction item donations electronically. For assistance, please contact Ana or Andrew via email at auction@vistamarschool.org
