Snohomish Education Foundation Annual Auction 2016
Snohomish Education Foundation Hosts
“Imagine…the power of dreaming together!” Fundraising Auction
On October 10, 2015, Snohomish Education Foundation hosted its “Imagine…the power of dreaming together!” Annual Fundraising Auction at the Tulalip Resort Casino. The Snohomish community showed how much we value and support education with donations reaching a new record of over $200,000.00. The event began with a performance by 2015 graduates from Snohomish High School, Garrett Hall and Olivia Verrill who sang an upbeat version of “Destination” followed by a night filled with frenzied bidding. During the “Fund a Need” portion of the evening, Allison Hoeth, 2015 graduate from Snohomish High School spoke on the impact that class room grants and scholarships had made on her life. Valley View Middle School Principal, Nancy Rhoades, also spoke to the importance of class room grants and the importance of supporting students in the Snohomish School District.
“Thanks to our many generous donors, corporate sponsors, and volunteers this evening was a great success”, stated Robin Stefanson, Board Vice President and 2015 Auction Chair. “The funds donated today make a lasting impact on the students of tomorrow. Monies raised through the auction help us continue our Class room Grants, Scholarships, District-wide Grants and Hansen Shoe Fund programs.”
