The Melissa Education Foundation hosted its annual “Give Them Wings” Gala and Casino Night on Friday, Sept. 30 at Mitas Hill Vineyard. The sold out event featured a masquerade theme and had over 300 in attendance.

Attendees enjoyed food, drinks, gaming, raffles, and a live auction. The event was a big success, raising over $50,000 for Melissa students and teachers – a five percent gain from last year’s gala.

“The Melissa Education Foundation receives so much support from the community, and as Melissa continues to grow, so does our awareness for giving back to Melissa ISD through teacher grants and student scholarships,” said Executive Director Kellie Maynard.

Photos from the event can be purchased from HBT Photography with all proceeds supporting Melissa students and teachers.
