The 2015 North East Educational Foundation’s 24th Annual Starlight Gala was consistently described as the most enjoyable in NEEF history. It is estimated that NEEF raised more than $170,000 Saturday, February 21.

The room was filled to capacity with more than 500 in attendance. Guests placed bids on silent auction items through a smartphone bidding system and participated in an interactive, competitive game of Heads or Tails. The winner was awarded a prize of $1,000 that was donated by an anonymous sponsor.

The NEEF Gala raised funds through sponsorships, a live auction and a silent auction. Funds raised will go toward classroom enrichment projects in the North East school district. Project examples include reading intervention kits, STEM materials, resources for community gardens, iPads and robotics programs. Projects must enhance learning and serve purposes outside of district-funded curriculum.
