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.

What This Year’s Funds Will Be Used For

Our goal is to reach $50,000 to support the Foundation’s 12 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 $30,000 ($7,500 to each elementary building) to fund the purchase of mobile STEAM Carts (science, technology, engineering, art and math).
