The night was full of milestones as 2016 also marks the 30th year of NEEF’s founding.

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 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.

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, iPads and robotics programs.
