Mapleton Education Foundation Raises More Than $290,000 at 14th Annual Gala!
On Friday, October 26th, the Foundation hosted an extremely successful Annual Gala. Thanks to more than 475 generous donors and guests, we raised over $290,000. This goal wasn’t an arbitrary one. We needed to meet that goal to ensure that at least 50 Mapleton students were guaranteed the support they need to enroll in a post-secondary program with no private loans – and hopefully with no loans at all. We also needed to provide a $30,000 investment in the District’s Early Childhood Education Program. This program ensures that all Mapleton students have the opportunity to start school early and strong. Thanks to you, all of this can happen.
Guests not only raised an enormous amount of money, but also had a great time!
A highlight of the program is always the student speaker, and this year’s program didn’t disappoint, with the crowd hearing from Carlos Villar. Carlos was a scholarship winner attending the University of Denver. He went on to internship with the Neenan Company and then “dug” into his career in construction. He was on site for one of the country’s biggest dinosaur discoveries! He thanks Mapleton for believing in him and giving him the tools to succeed.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, thank you for ensuring that we can continue to nurture the greatness of Mapleton students.
We are very grateful for the support of many generous sponsors. Please make sure to thank them the next time you frequent their business!
