This prom might be for adults, but it sure still is for kidsâ¦ and chances are, this prom will be a night to remember! This year’s Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF) annual fundraising auction, presented by Donna Salof, invites adults to go ‘Back to Prom’ to raise funds for children, with profits going to schools of Coronado through the CSF.

âDonna Salof returns with generous support to the annual CSF gala, marking her fifth year as title sponsor and chair of the event,â said Michelle Gilmore, CEO and President. âShe attended the launch of Pathways in K-12 grades in engineering, robotics, instrumental and choral music, all thanks to her support to schools and students in Coronado. We love this theme and can’t wait to have our prom!
