Torrey Pines High School Foundation hosts ‘40 Year Celebration’ fundraiser

The Torrey Pines High School Foundation held its “40 Year Celebration” fundraiser March 28 at the Belly Up. This event raises money for the TPHS Foundation’s “Support All Students” fund and the focus this year is to equip 100 classrooms with LCD projectors.

In celebration of Torrey Pines’ 40th birthday, Resurrection Radio, a local four-piece classic alternative cover band with two TPHS Class of 1986 alums, TPHS Assistant Principal Rob Coppo and Scott Williams, was scheduled to perform. The band added guest musicians Dawn Davis-Bearson and Tim Campen, who are Torrey Pines Class of 1987 alumni, for this show.

The Detroit Underground headlined again this year, with professional auctioneer Steve Hamann leading the live auction. TPHS parent and KUSI news anchor Sandra Maas served as emcee of the event. Visit
