The Keller ISD Education Foundation has announced plans to hold its biggest fundraiser ever exactly six months from today. The 2018 “Rooted Gala” will take place on April 28, 2018, at the Marriott Champions Circle in Fort Worth.
The gala is a grand celebration that has been held each spring since 2013 to raise funds for the Foundation, which in turn supports the students, teachers and programs in the Keller Independent School District. Last year’s event raised just more than $200,000 for the Foundation, and the chairperson of this year’s gala, Kristen Scalf, expects to raise even more in 2018.
“We’re excited to announce the date for our next gala is now just six months away, and we are planning our biggest and best event ever. The 2018 gala will highlight the wonderful educational programs the Foundation has been able to support in Keller ISD, and we’ll be announcing the district’s teachers of the year. So it’ll be an incredible evening of fun and celebration, and we hope the entire community will be able to join us,” said Kristen Scalf, Foundation board member and chair of the 2018 gala.
The Keller ISD Education Foundation is an independent, 501-C-3 non-profit organization that raises funds from the community to support the students, teachers and programs of the Keller Independent School District. Funds raised at the gala and other events support classroom grants to teachers to enhance the educational experience, scholarships for district students, and other innovative, special programs throughout the district.
