November 4, 2021 Goleta, California – The Dos Pueblos High School Foundation announced the date of its inaugural ROUND UP event today. The community fundraising event will take place Saturday, April 9, 2022 from 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm at the Frog Bar & Grill at the Glen Annie Golf Club in Goleta with a goal of raising $50,000.
The annual ROUND UP event will be held each spring to help raise supplemental funding for Dos Pueblos High School through business and community partnerships. The adult-only event is expected to draw 250 parents, staff, alumni and community supporters and will include food, drinks, live and silent auctions, a golf tournament and line dancing. Funds raised will be turned into grants supporting initiatives such as curriculum enhancements, special projects, facilities improvements and campus beautification, with a primary goal of benefiting all DPHS students.
“The ROUND UP provides a wonderful opportunity to bring people together as a community while helping raise funds for important programs at DP,” stated Nancy Naretto, Vice President of Fundraising. “After almost two years without being able to hold an event, we are ready to celebrate. And what better way to do that than a fun community event benefiting our local students?”
The event will begin with the golf tournament and culminate with the dinner and auctions. Local favorite, John Palminteri will be the Master of Ceremonies, and professional auctioneer, Alicia Williams will preside over the live auction. Attendees can choose to attend both the golf tournament and the ROUND UP event, or pick one or the other.

Tickets for the event can be purchased here.
The DPHS Foundation was founded in 2015 and provides strategic guidance and funding for projects that enhance school facilities as well as supporting all Dos Pueblos students to excel and achieve excellence in academics and extracurricular endeavors. The Foundation is committed to helping raise needed funds to continue to improve the public high school experience and to help bridge the gap between public school funding and the true cost of a comprehensive and high-quality education. Recent projects include the new Charger Patio project and Tile Wall murals to honor the classes of 2020 and 2021.
“We are new to the local school foundation world. The other local high schools have strong foundations with solid fundraising track records, so we have a lot of ground to make up,” stated Rechelle Ringer, DPHS Foundation President. “We have worked really hard the past two years in preparation for this moment. We had incredibly successful short-term fundraisers during the pandemic and have raised over $28,000 to date through our annual campaign this fall. The ROUND UP event is our first large-scale outreach to our community at large and we are excited to work together in such a fun way.”
Local businesses may donate items for the auctions and/or become a corporate sponsor. Interested businesses should reach out to Nancy Naretto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
