Set sail at the Galveston ISD Educational Foundation’s (GEF) annual Seaside Spring Soiree Thursday, March 9, 2017 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. This year’s event will take place at the 1880 Garten Verein in Galveston and will feature dancing, heavy hors d’oeuvres, libations and more. The event celebrates the culmination of GEF’s “Let Your Light Shine” fundraising campaign benefiting GEF and the Grants to Teachers and Schools program where financial assistance is provided to purchase learning materials and implement innovative programming in Galveston Independent School District (GISD) classrooms.

A silent auction will present a robust shopping experience with something for every budget from lavish vacations, professional/college sports tickets and sundry merchandise. Additionally, GEF will pull two winning tickets for their annual raffle drawing at the Seaside Spring Soiree. One lucky winner will receive a Tempur-Pedic mattress set valued at up to $1,999 donated by StarFine Furniture & Sleep Center in Galveston. A second winning ticket holder will receive a Carnival cruise for two contributed by Moody National Bank. Tickets for the raffle are $10 each or three for $25 and can be purchased at the event or by contacting the GEF office.

Individual tickets to the event are available for a $100. Donors giving $500 or more will receive recognition at the event and in event promotions. GEF recognizes donors giving $2,500 or more by giving a grant in their honor. See below for outline of sponsor benefits. Click the register button above or call (409) 766-5157 to contribute today.
