Millbrae Fun-Days (NEW!)

Millbrae Fun-Days

A great new way to build community, spend time with friends, and help support education in Millbrae!

 

What is a Millbrae Fun-Day?

A Millbrae Fun-Day is a chance to spend time with other Millbrae parents or families while doing something fun! New events are scheduled all the time on an ongoing basis.

Looking for a small get-together? We have that. Want to do something with a big crowd? We have those, too! If you are looking for a family event, look no further! Or…are you hoping for a parents-only event to enjoy with friends? Also on the list.

Next time you’re looking for a fun idea for date night, family time, or mom’s/dad’s night out, check out our offerings first!

It’s a win-win: you can relax, build community, celebrate time together, and at the same time raise funds for Millbrae students.
