7th Annual Gala is a Success!
Our Seventh Annual Fan of the Foundation Gala, held Sep. 25 at the Aqua Turf, was another huge success for Southington Public School students.

With a theme of "Tailgating at the Turf!" attendees dressed in their favorite sports apparel and dined on tailgate-style appetizers and entrees.

The talented Max Reiss, political reporter for NBC Connecticut, emceed the live auction. From Patriots Tickets, to Wine Pairings with Tapas for eight, to an Apple Watch, to some terrific vacations, Foundation Fans were encouraged by Max to "up the ante" and bid top dollar for each item.

The silent auction brought its own brand of fun because of the unique items up for bid including student artwork, "Principals for the Day" opportunities, PTO Baskets, tickets to sporting events, spa and restaurant gift certificates, and so much more.

This year's  Fan of the Foundation Gala event raised $17,000. All proceeds are distributed via grants to the district's classrooms. The SEF to date has awarded over $165,000 to fund enriching initiatives that enhance educational opportunities and promote lifelong learning.
