On the evening of May 9th the Stars Among Us Gala, hosted by New England Dairy & Food Council, was held at the Putnam Club East at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. The fundraising gala was held to celebrate the tenth year of Fuel Up to Play 60 in New England and to honor a select group of individuals whose impact on health and wellness in their schools has led to significant changes in the lives of students.

The nearly $50,000 raised from the event will be used to expand the reach of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program. Expanding the program’s reach translates into more opportunities for schools to start or enhance school and summer meal programs; increase access to nutritious dairy foods served at school; promote physical activity at school; and offer dairy farm-to-school educational experiences and resources to students.
