About the Event
The Off to the Races Gala is an opportunity for the community to come together for a good cause! Funds raised will support the ever growing needs of our school district. The evening will include dinner, a program, live and silent auctions, music and dancing and is the Foundation’s main fundraising event.
What This Year’s Funds Will Be Used For
Our goal is to raise $50,000 for the Foundation’s Annual Fund, which supports funding for all of our current programs. By growing our Annual Fund, we can continue to provide more scholarships, assist more students and teachers, and work with administration to create new and lasting initiatives. Check out the programs tab of our website to learn more about our programs!
Your Investment Makes a Difference
This is the Foundation’s 27th year of supporting students and teachers in our school district! The Foundation has awarded over $350,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors and more than $180,000 to support new and innovative ideas in the classroom. The Foundation funds many other programs, including Student Needs, TeamMates Mentoring, Teacher Professional Development and more.
Last year the Foundation provided an additional $35,000 ($7,500 to each elementary building and Bennington Middle School) to fund the purchase of mobile STEAM Carts (science, technology, engineering, art and math). Gala funds also supported the purchase of leveled readers at Anchor Pointe Elementary School to match all other elementary locations.
