MEF Gala 2022

5th Annual MEF Gala 2022

The Millbrae Education Foundation (MEF) is excited to host our largest in person event in nearly two years on Saturday, April 9, 2022!

Please continue to check this page for updates but for now, we wanted to share some important details:

  • Our theme is "Soaring to New Heights," with a focus on travel and adventure. After a difficult two years, we look forward to charting our future together as a community. We don't want to give too much away, but we will have travel-themed cocktails and first class activities leading up to the Gala (be sure to follow us on Instagram (@millbrae_kids) and Facebook (Millbrae Education Foundation), if you aren't already).

  • We want to utilize the beautiful space and make sure everyone is moving and mingling - we'll be serving heavy appetizers (with a carving station) and drinks available throughout the museum.

  • Wear your fanciest cocktail attire and comfy shoes.

  • In keeping with MEF Gala tradition, we will have First Class/Premium seating available (tables of ten people) and enough seats throughout the Museum for all guests.

  • Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday, February 9!

  • We have a Gala Pandemic Team dedicated to staying educated about the scientific data and government guidelines pertaining to COVID. Although this is not set in stone, we are currently going to require proof of vaccination for all guests.

  • As one of the lowest funded K-8 school districts in San Mateo County, our schools are dependent on the funds generated from the Gala. Gala proceeds make up an average of 40% of our Annual Fund Grant.
