The 25th Anniversary Silver Jubilee Gala held at the Sugar Land Marriott Hotel on March 3, 2018, was a sparkling success. This event, presented by Perdue Brandon Fielder Collins & Mott LLP, smashed every record for the past 25 years netting over $361,000 for Grants to Teachers and Schools.
Close to 900 people were in attendance, and every school in Fort Bend ISD participated by providing a Silent Auction basket. Gala Co-Chairs Lynn Halford and Peggy Jackson ignited the Foundation's Future with this spectacular event. The "Paddles Up" contributions raised $13,600 for a Sensory Room for Autistic Children. Supporters were entertained by the Clements High School Drumline and the music of Password while bidding on a variety of auction items.
We truly appreciate all of our Underwriters, Table Sponsors, attendees, volunteers and schools for supporting the Foundation and helping enrich and enhance the quality of education for all Fort Bend ISD students.
We look forward to seeing you next year!
