This year's theme is 80's Prom. So warm up your hair crimper and dust off that skinny necktie because Saturday, March 25th is prom night at the Edison Spring Auction and Gala! More details about this awesome event are available at 

The event is a key fundraiser for the Edison PTA, which supports an amazing array of programs for our kids, from Art and Garden Science programs, Kinder music, assemblies (such as the Oakland Ballet), field trips, and our socio-emotional Peace Keeper program.

Can't wait to attend? Here's what you need to do:

  • Mark your calendar and book your sitter for March 25.
  • Buy tickets. Tickets are limited and go on sale Tuesday, January 17. Everyone is welcome and there will be a confidential pay-what-you-can option.
  • Consider donating to or sponsoring the event. Read on for more information about ways to get involved - big and small. Great donations make for a great auction.

The Auction Committee will share more details and answer questions at Coffee Talk on Friday, January 20th after drop-off in the Edison Office Courtyard (next to the bike racks).  You can also reach out to
