Festival Raises Funds for University City Schools

 UC High Band
The University City High band performs.
Guests, from babies to senior citizens, filled the Standley Park in University City on a beautiful day to enjoy a variety of games (from cow milking to climbing wall), contests (sauerkraut popsicles?! Really?!), music (accordions are enjoying a comeback), food mmm…French Gourmet’s strudel and pretzels after a big bratwurst), and beverages (10 delicious microbrews and 20 gallons of artisanal root beer to wash everything down), all to raise money for EdUCate! (The University City Foundation for Public Schools).

The Blue Angels were nice enough to perform, as were the Standley Middle School and UC High marching bands.

Oktoberfest kicked off EdUCate’s fall Dollardo to All proceeds from the event and from DAD will fund teacher and principal grants at the five schools this year.

University City and all San Diego Unified schools know how tight things are and appreciate your support in providing UC cluster students with supplemental supplies.
