HPS Ed Foundation to host Back-to-School BENEFIT BASH

 

Back-to-School celebrations can be for adults, too -- according to Sandi Fotheringham, executive director of the HPS Education Foundation, Inc. "This can be a busy time for adults--educators, parents, and businesses; but everyone deserves a night to relax and enjoy a fun evening that celebrates education while enjoying an 'adult' evening with community friends," said Fotheringham. 

The Back-to-School Benefit Bash is scheduled for Saturday, August 24th from 7:30 pm to 11:00 pm at Market on Main in Hickory, 

Open to the entire adult community (age 21 and over), the Back-to-School Bash will benefit the students and staff of Hickory Public Schools. "One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the classrooms," said Fotheringham. "Over the past five years, the Foundation has awarded $136,000 in grants to HPS educators for classroom projects and instructional needs. So the funds raised from this evening event contribute to a wonderful cause," she said.

The evening will include delicious, heavy hors d'oeuvres prepared by Chef John Duke, owner of Market on Main, and Chef Ruben Cazares. In addition, the evening will include a raffle, special "apple" signature drinks, and a DJ--with music for dancing.

Tickets are available now and may be purchased online:  
HICKORYB2SBASH@EVENTBRITE.COM  or by contacting Sandi Fotheringham: 828-320-9429. Tickets are $35 per person, or $60 for two.

"We look forward to seeing a great turnout from our adult community from throughout Catawba County and beyond," said Harriett Jeffords, president of the HPS Education Foundation. 

"Educators, parents, grandparents, businesses, corporations, and everyone's neighbors, friends, and colleagues  -- please join us for this adult evening of fun as we celebrate and support excellence in education at Hickory Public Schools!" said Jeffords.
