THANK YOU to the parents, teachers, administrators, and community members to came together for the 2016 MVEF Gala & Auction: A Celebration of Teaching on Saturday, March 19. Nearly 220 attendees came out to support our schools.
We are particularly grateful to the sponsors who help make this event a success: Greystone West, Microsoft, Synopsys, Keygent, Recology, Heritage Bank of Commerce, Employee Benefits Services, Quattrocchi Kwok Architects, GCA Law Partners LLP, Sonitrol Security, Margaret Abe-Koga, Artik Art & Architecture, EarthBaby Compostable Diaper Service, and Helming’s Auto Repair. And of course, dozens of people helped by selling raffle tickets, picking up donations, helping to prepare items for auction, decorating, setting up, cleaning up, and so much more. Thank you all.
At the Gala, MVEF President Adrienne Heiskanen announced that MVEF has exceeded our fundraising goal for 2016-17. Ms. Heiskanen presented Superintendent Dr. Ayindé Rudolph with a ceremonial check for $791,000.
