Join us to honor 50 years of PS1 and the legacy of co-founders Joel and Ellie Pelcyger. We will gather as current families and alumni for alfresco cocktails, silent auction, dinner, live auction, and dancing. We can't wait to celebrate with you at 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 23 at the Skirball Cultural Center.
All proceeds from this year's Gala benefit the Founders Fund. This Fund supports Joel and Ellie’s dream of providing a pluralistic education to as many children as possible. Every gift will have a lasting impact on PS1 through support of a center for pluralism and financial aid. Your generosity will serve as a meaningful expression of gratitude to both Ellie and Joel.
