The Carpinteria Education Foundation (CEF) held its 27th Annual Carp-a-Cabana event at Carpinteria High School on Saturday, Sept. 7, under a beautiful late summer sky. Attendees enjoyed a hosted bar, buffet dinner, music and live and silent auctions in support of the Carpinteria Unified School District’s Performing Arts Program, led for more than 30 years by Elise Unruh, who was honored for her years of service to area schools. Sharing her passion for music and theater with multiple generations of students in Carpinteria, Unruh has taught drama, vocal ensemble and orchestra at the high school, and band at both the middle and high schools, advised for Muses, Carpinteria High School’s fully inclusive drama club and advocated for the arts in all district schools.
