The Annual La Jolla Art & Wine Festival takes over La Jolla Village on October 7th and 8th. Stretching over a 1/2 mile, on Girard Ave., this two-day, juried art show and fundraiser has garnered a reputation as one of the most prestigious art & wine festivals in Southern California.

All profits raised benefit underfunded programs such as art, music, science, physical education, technology, and on-site medical care at local public elementary and middle schools.





This year, we are shortening our campaign to only one month, Oct 1 - 31. 

The total Foundation budget is $344,000 which includes funding a classroom teacher, 2 part-time teachers, PE, Art, Music/Dance/Theater, Spanish, Technology, Running Club, Garden, and Counselor. 

Our goal for this campaign is $165,000, with a suggested donation of $100/month/child. 

Stay tuned for more details!
