I wanted to personally thank you for your support of the Five Star Education Foundation and the 2020 Reach for the Stars Gala.  We want to thank you for standing by us this week and by our students. Because of you, our online auction was actually our largest silent auction to date and the community did a wonderful job of rallying behind our students.  Your contribution made this happen and we are so grateful for you.

Because of you, our students will have access to education and opportunity that would not be available.  Thank you for believing in what is possible for our students through public education. It takes a whole community of people like you to make it happen.  Through you promoting this event online, we were able to maintain the silent auction for the event and over $21,000 was raised over the weekend for our students.  Their need for support does not go away simply because they are out of school for a few weeks. In fact, the work we are doing together with you is even MORE important.

Together, we are ensuring our students will have access to more resources, training, and experiences that will ensure they are future ready.  Together, we are telling our teachers that we have their backs and will continue to support their classroom needs. THANK YOU for being the difference.

In the next couple weeks, we’ll have a better idea of when it will be ideal to distribute the items you may have purchased.  In the meantime, we appreciate your support and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.


With Gratitude-

Shannon Hancock

Executive Director, Five Star Education Foundation
