Here’s how it works:
Come support the 260 students of Marshall Elementary School, a public elementary school located in the heart of the Mission District in San Francisco. The school has many Latino families, and we are always trying to provide events to bring some of that Latino flair to our fundraisers!
Lucha Libre Mexicana is our annual Mexican wrestling event. Promo Lucha Azteca provides the ring and the wrestlers, and Marshall provides the space, manages the tickets, and sells concessions (such as hot dogs and popcorn).
The money raised helps the PTA support the many programs it provides for the students, specifically programs in science, technology, physical education, community building, and teamwork. As a PTA, we typically have to raise between $50,000 and $60,000 each year to fill in the gaps in the public school budget. Many of our families are lower income families, so we are looking for events that allow the community to help, while having some fun at the same time.
