25 years ago, Spring Fling started as “Piedmont Entertains” – a silent auction of Parent Parties that included such offerings as “A Shakespeare Picnic” and “A Family Affair at Stinson Beach.” From the beginning, Piedmont parents have enjoyed a good party and over the years, the event has grown and, in the process, raised millions of dollars for our schools.
Today's Spring Fling is a season of fundraising events all supporting Piedmont’s elementary schools. It kicks off in January with an online camp auction, continues through the Spring with Parent Parties, Sponsorship programs, a Grandparent Party, the Comings & Goings photography project, and an Online Auction. It culminates in April with our Grand Gala which is a fantastic party complete with dinner, dancing, and a live auction.
The goal of Spring Fling is 100% parent participation. All funds raised go directly to our schools to support science, math, art, computer science, library activities and other vital programs.
