Many school districts have created a foundation to raise money and award grants to help support and fund academic programs within their schools. The Evergreen School District Foundation held their GALA fund raiser Saturday evening at the Vancouver Hilton. It was an evening to raise money for kids and have fun. Attendees heard predinner performances by students from Shahala Middle School and Heritage High School and several principals gave tribute to the Foundation for supporting student programs in their schools.

Highlights of the evening saw ESDF President Kris Greene and Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt draw ten lucky winners for the Golden Ticket raffle. Each winner will receive a college scholarship to any accredited college. Once the formal events of the evening were concluded, attendees were entertained by our local group 5 Guys Named Moe.

It was a great event to support local students. It took many hours of plannig by Kris and the ESDF Board. Hats off to them and the other foundations in Clark County for their tireless work for kids.
