La Jolla High School boosters gather for Burning Red gala


The Foundation of La Jolla High School’s annual gala, “Burning Red,” was held March 14, 2015 at La Jolla Country Club. Viking alumna Kristi Pieper chaired the event. Some 225 parents, teachers and alumni were entertained by the Funk Junkies Band while raising funds for the high school via a silent auction.

KUSI morning show host Brad Perry emceed the spirited evening, which featured a preview of the school’s musical “Anything Goes,” as well as a rousing performance by the Viking Marching Band drum majors and flag girls, whose new uniforms were funded by the foundation. Proceeds will go into the foundation’s general fund, which includes support for a school nurse, college counseling services and the athletic trainer, along with other programs and capital items not funded by the school district.
