The money raised from this event goes to support the educational projects for the teachers and students of La Porte ISD.
Each year, the event brings together hundreds of industry leaders, community members, and employees from La Porte ISD to celebrate the start of a new school year and to honor the “stars” of the district – the teachers.
Since 1993, more than 1,300 teachers have received funding for grants and special projects totaling more than $2 million dollars. For the 2016-17 school year, a total of $175,558 was distributed in grant funds to 138 teachers and staff members.
