The PTA organizes a variety of fundraising events to help pay for important school programs. These events have the added benefit of being a lot of fun for our families, bringing us together as a community.


In addition, we also organize family events just for our students and families to have fun!  This has included ice cream socials, family dance, and dodgeball!  If you have an idea you'd like to share, please email us at We'd love to hear from you!  New faces and ideas are always welcome. 


See below for past and present events that we have enjoyed! 



Dine Out


Once a month, a local restaurant donates a percentage of the proceeds back to our PTA.

Participating restaurants include Redwood City BBQ, Crouching Tiger, Canyon Inn, Sancho's, Villa Lucia, Mountain Mike's Pizza, Zareen's, Chipotle and others! All of course do take-out too. Do you have a favorite restaurant you'd like us to contact? Email us at



Thank you for participating in our first Dine Out on August 30, at Redwood City BBQ.  Stay tuned for the date/location of the next one...



Round Up at Redwood City BBQ


In addition to our monthly Dine Outs, Redwood City BBQ has offered to help us with our continued fundraising effort with their Round Up program

 When orders are placed online, guests will be asked whether they want to round up to the next dollar, and that money will be donated to the Henry Ford PTA!

Check out their menu and website HERE and be sure to ROUND UP!!

 Pasta Dinner & Fundraiser

MAY 17, 2024


Pasta Dinner is our biggest fundraising event of the year.  At the event, we have games, a Book Walk, and of course... a pasta dinner!   In addition, there is an on-line auction; previous auction items have included a Tahoe vacation, bike repair package, tickets to Giants and 49er games, and so much more!  Each class also organizes a Class Basket which gets raffled off -- so many opportunities to win amazing prizes!  And finally for the adults, we have hosted a Wine Wall, where each $20 ticket guarantees you a bottle of wine!


As always, this event relies on volunteers, and every penny goes back to our school!
