The San Carlos Chickens’ Ball donated $17,000 to the San Carlos Elementary School District. The funding — drawn from sponsorships, donations, ticket sales and more — will finance the school system’s visual and performing arts program. The Chickens’ Ball is a biennial variety show presented by the San Carlos PTA, intended to raise money fro cultural and public arts programs as well as local schools. The fundraiser had hoped to generate $40,000 for public schools this year, but that was limited due to the pandemic. Visit chickensball.org to find out more about the program.
