2021 Gala

After having to cancel both of our major events in 2020, we were ecstatic to bring back our annual Gala this fall, celebrating the San Leandro school and business communities while raising funds for local students AND having a blast!


Held at the iconic Truth is Beauty statue at the San Leandro Tech Campus, the Gala was safely outdoors for the comfort of guests. Gala attendees were treated to fun fare from Food Truck Mafia food trucks, new wave 80’s tunes from the impressive local ‘dad band’, The San Leandroids, the always popular photo booth from Fun Flicks, plus unique decor from Traci Joy Floral & Events.


Most importantly, Gala guests got to see firsthand the amazing work that SLED has fostered on the gorgeous big screen presentation and in person with Washington Elementary’s beautiful mural. Being back together to enjoy the party and our collective contributions  to local schools and community was definitely a highlight of 2021.


Our sponsors and guests helped to raise nearly $60,000 for SLED. We can’t wait to welcome you all back to the 2022 Gala.
