Blue & Gold Fundraiser

The Blue & Gold is Vistamar's biggest fundraising event each year.  It 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 Shade Hotel in Redondo Beach on May 4, 2019. 

It takes a truly amazing team of staff, faculty, parent volunteers, and community supporters to make the evening a success. We hope you will join us to make this a fun and successful evening!

    Fun cocktail chic (and make sure to have your dancing shoes on)

    This year we have a lovely patio area as well as indoor dinner seating. While the patio is heated, it's best to bring something warm just in case.

    There will be hosted valet parking on the hotel premises but we strongly suggest taking a service like UBER or LYFT as there will be other events further down the road which could cause some traffic
