Drive for Schools

Drive for schools is one of the best fundraisers around. Sponsored by the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and Toyota/Subaru of Santa Cruz, this fundraiser raised over half a million dollars last year alone! And so far over 3 million in its past 11 years.
Each ticket is $5 and a pack of 6 is $25. Purchase some tickets to help out a local public school and maybe you will win. There are hundreds of local prizes as well as ten $1,000 cash prizes!

Children learn and perform a variety of songs during daytime performances. Parents are welcome to attend, but get there early as these events are often “standing room only”.
