Thank you to all who attended the 8th Annual EdUCate! Oktoberfest on Saturday, October 1, 2016, and to all who donated to Dollar a Day! Games, food, beverages, music, and the beer garden were enjoyed by many. The book sale was hugely popular. Thank you to Dave Roberts for opening the event. Congratulations to Bill Pearson for winning the Principal’s Challenge for Standley Middle School. And thank you to our volunteers. We could not have done this without our wonderful volunteers.
All donations and event proceeds go directly to University City public schools for the 2016-2017 school year. With your help we raised over $22,000 for UC schools!
Thanks to Greg Hom for the photos!

- Beer Garden
We feature a great variety of San Diego brews at this event. Check back for the exact lineup. Back by popular demand is home-brew tasting, too! The beer is donated, so all proceeds from the beer garden go straight to our schools.
- Dollar A Day VIP
Contributors to EdUCate!’s Dollar-A-Day (DAD) program at a level of $180 or higher will receive VIP status in the beer garden. This includes unlimited beer pours for two people (or wine, or non-alcoholic beverages). A $180 contribution is equal to a-dollar-a-day for every school day.
Visit the Food Vendors – A Portion of the proceeds go to EdUCate! There will be Hot Dogs, Brats, Kettlecorn, Shaved Ice, Pretzels, Bottled Water, and Bake Sale. Food vendors are cash only.

There will be lots of activities including the rock climbing wall, beer stein contest and, best of all, our Principal’s Challenge — where the 5 principals from our U.C. schools compete against each other.
