The Clear Creek Education Foundation’s Gala Committee asks that you “Save the Date” to attend the Annual Reach for the Stars Gala. The “Shining Stars” Gala will be held on Saturday, November 6, 2010, at the San Luis Resort, 5222 Seawall Boulevard in Galveston. Guests attending this year’s event will enjoy a tantalizing dinner, exciting auctions, and be entertained by the Mickey Hobbs Trio.

A special feature of the evening will be the recognition of outstanding alumni from Clear Creek ISD and notable individuals who have made a difference with their support of public education and the District.

Wendy Shaw, Gala Chairman, and Lisa Holbrook, Co-Chairman, along with the Shining Stars Gala Committee, are busy coordinating this Hollywood-themed event. The Committee invites businesses, organizations and individuals to consider helping sponsor the Gala, either through underwriting the event, purchasing an ad in the program or through donations for the exciting auctions being planned.

The Clear Creek Education Foundation, established in 1992, is comprised of business and community leaders; all of whom volunteer to raise funds to support the academic achievement of all students. Proceeds from the gala help to fund the following programs: Teacher Innovative Instructional Grants, Synergistic Career Exploration Labs, National Board Teacher Certification and the Clear Horizons Early College High School program currently underway at San Jacinto Community College.

Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded grants worth over $800,000 to CCISD teacher.

The success of the Foundation is due not only to the volunteer effort of many but also to the countless businesses and individuals in the community who make a difference by financially supporting fundraising activities. The following attachments provide a multitude of options of ways that you can show your support. In order to properly recognize our supporters in all publicity materials, donations should be received no later than October 15, 2010.
