Thanks to everyone who attended our 4th Annual FMS Lunar New Year Gala Fundraiser to support the Mandarin immersion program in San Mateo Foster City School District. Thanks to Shieny Oenadi & Vita Blake for co-chairing this year’s event, as well as Nhi Huynh and our auction team who pulled together an incredible array of items for the event and worked furiously through the event tallying up the totals and checking our winners out. Huge shout out also to Jim Yeager for being an amazing MC, Ed Vaughn for kicking our live auctions up a few notches, and Mike Toy for entertaining everyone with his magic. Thanks to everyone who made the event our biggest success ever, raising approximately $80,000 – we look forward to seeing you all next year!
