Foundation For Allen Schools has Nashville Nights Benefit, Oct. 13th!




 

Polish up your boots and get ready for a country-style good time while helping the Foundation For Allen Schools celebrate its 21th anniversary at the Oct. 13 Nashville Nights Benefit at the Courtyard by Marriott in Allen.

This evening includes a delicious dinner of Americana cuisine, the Good and Gone Band, live and silent auction and more starting at 7 p.m.  All proceeds from Nashville Nights directly support students and teachers in Allen ISD through the Foundation grant program and scholarship awards.

“Nashville Nights, our party with a purpose, is a fabulous way for the community to come together for some great fellowship and entertainment – all while showing their support for the Foundation and education in Allen ISD,” said Pam Toups, president of the Foundation Board and co-chair of Nashville Nights.

To date, the Foundation has invested more than $1.25 million back into Allen ISD, directly benefiting thousands of students and supporting Allen teachers.

“The Foundation is well known for the Eagle Run and the funds it raises in the spring – it is such a great family event,” said co-chair Louise Master. “This gala party – Nashville Nights – gives the community a chance to leave the kids with a sitter and come have a unique date night out while supporting the Foundation. We can’t wait to see everyone there!”

The live and silent auction will offer items and experiences that are exclusive for Nashville Nights – revelers will have the chance to sponsor scholarships and help fund classroom grants as well as bid on unique experiences and items. Local businesses can contribute items for the auction by contacting foundation@allenisd.org.

A few tickets are still available at www.AISDfoundaiton.org  and are $130 per person; table sponsorships (seating for 10) are $1,800; and other sponsor levels are available. For more information contact Regina Taylor at 972-727-0362 or regina.taylor@allenisd.org

     

 Foundation For Allen Schools

The Foundation for Allen Schools is a separate nonprofit education foundation which exists solely to support Allen ISD teachers and students. The Foundation was established in 1997 by a group of school and community leaders who were charged with utilizing a donation from two sisters and long-time Allen residents,  Miss Viola Rose and Mrs. Minnie Rose Shelton. The Foundation For Allen Schools will fund 124 grants to Allen ISD teachers and staff for the 2018-19 school year.These grants – which impact every campus and include all subject categories – total $120,000. This is the largest amount funded for one year by the Foundation. The Educational Grant program provides funding for innovative, creative classroom and campus programs and projects. Nearly 200 Allen ISD teachers will be involved in this year’s program and the grants should impact more than 16,000 students.
