The East Greenbush Education Foundation has announced the 2017 Columbia Hall of Fame inductees who will be honored at its annual gala on March 24 from 6-9 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, N.Y.
Four alumni – William Bianco ’83, David DeJulio ’76, Martin Mahar ’83 and Ernest Tubbs ’86 – and community members Jeff and Holly Rose will be honored at the popular springtime event.
The gala is open to the public and tickets cost $45 per person. There will be an open bar for cocktail hour, dinner, student performances and a silent raffle.
All proceeds from the gala go towards providing summer enrichment grants for East Greenbush Central School District students. This presents opportunities for our students to attend camps and enrichment programs they may not be able to afford otherwise.
Since 1985, the Education Foundation has awarded nearly $250,000 of summer enrichment grants to almost 2,500 students from grades K-12. Your contribution to the Foundation supports these grants.
