A Night at the Museum Gala: A Fundraiser for Explore MCP School


Enjoy an elegant evening at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History to benefit MCP Middle and High School. Join us on March 24 from 6:00-9:00 pm to learn more about MCP and to enjoy live jazz, gourmet food, and local wines and beers while exploring the galleries and wonders of the museum. 

Guests are invited to explore California’s coastal edge through prints by woodcut artist Tom Killion alongside poems selected by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, Gary Snyder. A print donated by Killion will be auctioned at the event.

Silent and live auction opportunities include 40 yard-line tickets for the San Francisco 49ers, one week stay at a breathtaking beachside home in Maui, gift certificates from local restaurants and businesses and more!

Event proceeds benefit Explore MCP, an accredited non-profit middle and high school for grades 6-12 located in Scotts Valley. MCP’s college preparatory curriculum is designed to address students’ individual learning differences, in a close-knit community that engenders trust, compassion and lasting friendships.
