2018 Starlight Gala–Witte Museum Mays Center

Feb 24, 2018 | Featured, News

The 2018 North East Educational Foundation’s Annual Starlight Gala, held on Feb. 23, was the most successful on record with over 650 in attendance and raising close to $200,000. The night was full of milestones, as this gala marks the first to be held at the Witte Museum Mays Center.

The NEEF Gala raised funds through sponsorships, a live auction and silent auction. Guests placed bids on silent auction items through a smart phone bidding system and were able to participate in a Toast to Teachers where one lucky winner was awarded an Apple gift card for $1,000 donated by Platinum Wealth Solutions.

Funds raised will go toward classroom enrichment projects in North East ISD that enhance learning and serve purposes outside of district-funded curriculum. Project examples include reading intervention kits, STEM materials, resources for community gardens, 3-D printers and robotics programs.
