D5 Fall fundraiser ‘Evening for Education’ Oct. 6

District Five Foundation’s annual Fall Gala fundraiser, called an ‘Evening for Education’, will be presented on Thursday, October 6 at the River Center at Saluda Shoals. The program includes food and drinks by Dupre Catering and entertainment provided by the Carolina Jazz Xperience. There will be many items on display for the silent auction and sponsorships are still available.

This is the main fundraiser that funds the much needed teacher grants and student research grants and the backpack program. For tickets, visit district5foundation.org/events-fall

Proceeds from the event help support the Snack Pack Program that seeks to tackle food insecurity in our most vulnerable students.

Our mission is to do all we can to make the educational experience for the students and teachers in District 5 a positive one. Working together with the schools, the community and the businesses, the Foundation is here to give positive support for our future. The District Five Foundation also collects and distributes emergency fund for Lex-Rich District Five families.

Evening for Education begins a 6pm until 9pm. Tickets are $25 at the door.
