Mark Day School
39 Trellis Drive
San Rafael, CA 94903

Here’s your chance to join friends for a virtual holiday, to celebrate and raise money for our amazing Mark Day School! There will be music, magic and memories as we raise our virtual paddles for the “Full of Heart” Fund-a-Need. With your vacation-in-a-tote, you’ll be whisked away to the mountains, the beach and beyond.

Our entertainment for the evening is brought to us by Robert Strong, the San Francisco Magician. Robert has twice been voted San Francisco's 'Best Comedian' and three times voted San Francisco's 'Best Magician'. He has performed in over 40 countries, in all 50 states, on every major TV network, and twice at the White House. The All School and 8th grade videos by Chad Forrester are not to be missed. It’s your chance to see our Video scrapbook and how our soon-to-be graduates have grown! No party is complete without a Dance Party!
