The 2018 Eanes Education Foundation Gala will be held Saturday, February 24, 2018 at the JW Marriott Austin. This popular annual event is held to benefit the Eanes Education Foundation, which funds 50 teacher and staff positions in the Eanes Independent School District. With a slogan of “Funding the Gap between Adequate and Excellent,” EEF has granted over $16.5 million to fund more than 320 teachers since 2004.
According to Eanes ISD, “Year after year, the EEF annual gala breaks attendance and fundraising goals, and 2018 is on track to be the most successful event to date … Our students, teachers and staff are our stars.”
The event will include a VIP preview and champagne reception, a cocktail hour, dinner and dancing, and an after-party.
Table sales start at a $2,500 bronze level, which includes a table reserved for 10; pre-event website and social media promotion; and night-of-event program listing, table signage, and big screen acknowledgement. Top tier table packages are $10,000 and include the above, plus a complimentary JW Marriott hotel room the night of the Gala; premium wine during dinner; 10 tickets to a sponsors’ event at Hotel Granduca Austin; invitation to a VIP Preview Reception; company logo on electronic bidding devices; and more. Select underwriting opportunities also are still available.
“Here in Eanes ISD, we keep our eyes on the stars and our feet on the ground!” says the event website. “We know our community will give all they can and never stop looking up!”
