Gladstone Education Foundation raises $57,000
Over 280 people attended the Gladstone Education Foundation (GEF) dinner and auction April 6, netting $57,000 for Gladstone schools and youth programs. Of that, $13,000 will support development of a new dental clinic at the Gladstone Center for Children & Families.
"We are so fortunate to witness the generosity of the Gladstone community when the opportunity arises to support its children," said GEF President Terry Marsh. "Auction attendees responded overwhelmingly to support youth dental services. Many uninsured children will now have the opportunity to receive dental care to keep them healthy and promote their self-esteem."
The foundation's next fundraiser is the annual golf tournament at Stone Creek Golf Course on July 10. For registration and sponsorships, contact GEF Executive Director Tammy Tracy at 503-655-2777.
