The Melissa Education Foundation hosted its annual fundraising gala on Oct. 6 with a theme of “Sparkles N’ Spurs”. The gala netted almost $75,000 – a 30 percent gain from last year’s event – and sold out in less than 30 days, which led to record-breaking attendance.

“Many thanks to the Mitas and Kocsis family for allowing us to have our event there another year,” said Kellie Maynard, MEF Director. “And a big thanks to all the businesses, community members, teachers, and friends that support this foundation – believing in our students and their future!”

The Melissa Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that solely supports Melissa Schools with teaching grants and student scholarships.
