Why is MEF planning this Auction Gala?
To diversify our fundraising efforts and bring the community together for a fun and enjoyable evening.
How will the funds be used?
Funds raised from this event will supplement our annual campaign fundraising efforts which supports every student, every day by helping bridge the gap between state education funding and the real cost of educating our children.
