The Cache Education Foundation hosted the Christmas Tree Jubilee on Nov. 20. Hosted in the new Providence Elementary gymnasium, the event included a sit-down dinner, live entertainment and a silent auction.
“Everything sold, it was wonderful!” said Teri Lewis, the executive director of the Cache Education foundation. “The night went so much better than we could have ever expected. We really couldn’t have done it without the generous donations we received.”
The Christmas Tree Jubilee raised almost $1,900, which surpassed the initial goal of $1,500. Eric Frandsen, the vice president of the Cache Education Foundation, said the Cache Education Foundation has partnered with the Cache County School District technology administrators to explore possible projects they can fund using the money.
“It’s exciting to know that every penny of the money that was raised will go right into the classrooms of the Cache County schools,” Frandsen said. “We are looking to invest in non consumable resources that can be used over and over again that benefit the students. Now that we know how much money we have to work with, they can find a project that will put the funds that were raised to good use.”
The Cache Education Foundation plans on making its’ decision by the beginning of 2016. More information on the Cache Education Foundation can be found at http://cefut.org.
