It’s now a Springtime tradition: the annual Santa Monica Pier Fun Raiser. Open to the entire Wilshire Boulevard Temple community, it is a magical evening presented by the Brawerman Elementary School and Wilshire Boulevard Temple Erika J. Glazer and Mann Family Early Childhood Center parent volunteers.
On Thursday, May 16, from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m., The Pacific Park area on the Santa Monica Pier is open exclusively for our families and friends. In addition to being a great time for families, faculty, and staff from all of our schools and campuses to get together, the event raises money to benefit the scholarship funds and programs of both schools—thus helping many families partake in the excellent education provided by Temple schools.
The rides and attractions are open for adults and kids -- from the Pacific Wheel, West Coaster, and Sig Alert to Inkie’s Wave Jumper, Sea Planes, Frog Hopper, and Shark Jumper. There will also be games to play, such as the Goblet Toss and Balloon Bust, to win stuffed animals, basketballs, and other prizes. To help foster the Temple’s tradition of tikkun olam, bins will be located on-site for donations of these prizes to The Karsh Center to distribute to children in need.
And what’s a “fun-raiser” without food; dinner tickets, which can be used for a variety of meals and treats, are available to purchase.
So come and join other Temple families for this wonderful afternoon/evening of camaraderie and fun—and all for a good cause. Admission and meal tickets, scrip packs, and sponsorships can be purchased in advance at wbtla.org/pier. See you there!
