Broward Education Foundations’ 18th Annual Scholarship Celebration

Broward Education Foundations' 18th Annual Scholarship CelebrationFriday, May 10, 6:30pm-12am – Broward County Convention Center, 1950 Eisenhower Blvd., Fort Lauderdale

Soaring through the years as they celebrate 30 years of success at our “Airplane, the movie, themed event”, The 18th Annual Scholarship Celebration will raise scholarship dollars for deserving seniors who are graduating from Broward County Public Schools. Last year, the event was the largest fundraiser of its kind in Broward County, raising nearly $600,000.  Established in 1983, the non-profit Broward Education Foundation (BEF) seeks private contributions to supplement the public funding schools receive. The Foundation raises support from the private sector and charitable foundations to provide scholarships to college- or trade-bound high school graduates who have exhausted all other sources of support, grants to support innovative curriculum in the classroom and free school supplies to teachers in Title I low income schools through the Tools for Schools Broward center in Pompano Beach.  Tickets are $150 per person.  To RSVP or get sponsorship information, visit or call 754-321-2030.
