The Foundation conducts one annual signature event showcasing the impact of which supporters have made possible.  The event brings together grant recipients, supporters, educators and parents for an evening of fun, while raising revenue in support of foundation programs.

Every year the theme is different.  Every year there are new attendees who join previous attendees.  Yet  every year there is only ONE GALA for one “Evening for Education”, with one mission to foster a community investment in a superior education for the children of Sanger.

2015 “See the Difference”

Last year’s Evening for Education Gala was held on March 28, 2015 at McClain’s The Campsite.  The evening was a tremendous success as supporters of public education came together to support and share the vision for excellence in our schools.  The Foundation through the support of donors from all areas have awarded over $700,000 back into Sanger ISD through Classroom Initiatives, Student Scholarships, Fellowships, Staff Development, Donor Directed Programs and District Curriculum since the first award in 2007.

Our sponsors played an important role in making the Gala possible.  A big THANK YOU to Eikon Consultant Group and North Texas Print Solutions for being last year’s Event Sponsors.  Area Sponsors were Ebby Halliday Realtors/First United Bank & Trust, Springer/Lyle, Attorneys at Law, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital-Denton and Cultivar Capital.   Table Sponsors were CoServ Electric, First United Bank & Trust, Newland Real Estate-Jeff Higgs, Gage Dental & Sanger Medical Clinic, Habern Orthodontics, Howard Mortuary & Scribner Insurance, McCreary, Veselka, Bragg & Allen, P.C. Attorneys at Law, Sanger Family Dentistry, Sanger Insurance, The Sullivan Family, DATCU, Luttrull McNatt Chevrolet, 2M Farms, 1st Choice Home Health and Petty 5, Corp.  Thank You to all our sponsors for their support in making the “SEE THE DIFFERENCE” Gala a tremendous success.

With more than three hundred in attendance, the evening was a SPLASH as attendees took part in fun-filled activities throughout the evening.  A special Thank You is extended to four of our local restaurants that provided the dinner stations for the evening.  A delicious dinner buffet was provided by; Texas Smoke BBQ, Pellegrino’s Italian Ristorante, Miguelito’s Mexican Restaurant and Babe’s Chicken Dinner House.  SEF would also like to thank Sonic for providing “Ocean Water” as the Official Drink of the 2015 Gala.   Mouth-watering desserts were on display in the Dessert Frenzy along with a delightful candy bar where varieties of candies could be sampled.  Music for the evening was provided by Alyssa Reynolds, Jake McCandless and Chris Miller.  An entertaining “Let’s Go Fishing” dinner pull gave the opportunity for those in attendance to see what tasty delights they could catch.  Over 125 items were featured in the silent auction with an exciting line-up in the Live Auction.  Finally, a photo booth captured memories of the evening as guests posed for pictures.

The “See the Difference” Evening for Education Gala was a wonderful endeavor that was accomplished by many.  THANKS to anyone who volunteered, donated, bought and supported the Gala in any capacity.  It’s not the size of the gift that matters; it’s that every gift matters!  For more information on how you can support the Foundation, call the Foundation office at 940-458-4859 or contact
