This year’s dinner and auction benefiting Union Schools Education Foundation (USEF) raised more than $225,000 for students and teachers of Union Public Schools. The event, A Night of FOCUS (Funding Our Children at Union Schools), was held in April at River Spirit Casino Resort. “We are incredibly thankful to our 47 sponsors, including presenting sponsor Metro Appliances & More, and the more than 500 guests who attended the event,” explained Shea Ludwig, USEF executive director. “The wonderful turnout and the support we receive throughout the year will enable us to award classroom grants focusing on STEM initiatives, technology, the arts, and literacy, as well as programs like the Pre-K Transition Camp, Career Connect, Leadership and so much more.” To learn more about the Foundation, visit www.unionfoundation.org.
