About the Event
The Vegas Nights 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.
What This Year’s Funds Will Be Used For
Our goal is to reach $50,000 so that we can help fund the mobile STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) carts for the elementary and middle school buildings and playground equipment for the new elementary school, Anchor Pointe.
Your Investment Makes a Difference
This is the Foundation’s 26th year of supporting students and teachers in our school district! The Foundation has awarded over $3000,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors and more than $150,000 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 $20,000 ($5,000 to each elementary building and the middle school) for leveled readers and $10,000 to theTeamMates of Bennington Mentoring Program for post-graduate scholarships. Thanks to all the Gala supporters who made this possible!
