Schoolapalooza is a fundraising event for the Davis Joint Unified School District as part of the Dollar-a-Day Campaign, organized by the Davis Schools Foundation (DSF) together with the Davis Downtown Business Association.

April 24, 2010 was the 3rd such event, from noon to 4:30 PM. Activities were centered at the E Street Plaza. In addition to musical entertainment and raffles, fifty-three Davis businesses donated a portion of their proceeds to the DSF. Some businesses extended their special deals beyond Saturday.

Nearly $75,000 was donated during the 2010 Schoolapalooza.

Some features of the event:

  • Two stages for performances, one at the E Street Plaza and another one in front of the Varsity Theatre.
  • A fashion show, with junior high students modeling items from Lily's Fashion Lounge and Outdoor Davis. Both stores gave 10 percent of their Saturday proceeds to DSF.
  • Jazz bands from all three junior high schools, the popular youth band Hotwire, and the Davis High School Madrigals and Advanced Treble Choir.
  • Raffle tickets at $1 per ticket or 25 tickets for $20, purchased at the E Street Plaza and then placed in raffle boxes for prizes at shoppers' favorite stores. The business owners drew the winning raffle tickets after Schoolapalooza ends and contacted the winner; there was no need to be present to win.
  • If you brought in a flier from Caffe Italia or Cultivé, the restaurant would donate 100 percent of its sales from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to DSF. If you brought in a flier from Chipotle, it would donate 50 percent of burrito proceeds.
  • Annie's Homegrown, an organic food company, provided reusable shopping bags packed with Annie's products as thank-you gifts for people who donated to Dollar-a-Day at Schoolapalooza.
