The Calallen Education Foundation held its 6th Annual Casino Night Fundraiser at the Al Amin Shrine Temple on Saturday, March 4.
The event included a steak dinner, live and silent auctions and lots of casino table play. A great time was enjoyed by all and the proceeds from the event will be used to provide funding to innovative teachers within Calallen ISD striving for excellence in the classroom and superior student learning.
According to Robin Ritchey-Roy, Executive Director of the Calallen Education Foundation, the teachers within the district have great ideas and need a variety of tools to help the kids learn in a creative and interesting way.
“We had over 36 grant applications this year totaling over $128,000. While we will not be able to fund all the requests, our donors and community partners make that vision a reality for many of our educators. Casino Night is our largest fundraiser and without our table sponsors, live and silent auction donors, and Casino Night players and winners, we could not meet our goals. We are very grateful for all the support that made this year's Casino Night a very successful event.”
