SOUTHGATE, Mich. - Oct. 20, 2018 - PRLog -- The Trenton Educational Foundation's eighth annual Signature Event, a Great Gatsby gala, is Nov. 10, but plans are well under way for the fundraiser, monies from which are biannually dispersed for programs not figured into the annual Trenton Public Schools budget.

   TEF was established in 2008 by a consortium of community leaders committed to enhancing educational opportunities throughout the district.

  To date, $161,428.10 has been awarded for staff grants, plus 10 student scholarships in 2018, along with $2,500 for Challenge Day at the High School and the group announced funding for the Big Idea grant earlier this year, providing $57,768 to install an audio system in the elementary schools.

   Eager to provide further grants, the organizing committee is taking a slightly different approach to the event, which will still include Wall of Fame inductions.

   The committee has chosen the theme "Great Gatsby Gala," and is adding elements of Roaring 20's fun to the program, according to Tom Dickman, chairperson. This year's event will be at Crystal Gardens, accommodating up to 450 people and including dinner, dancing, auctions, raffles and more, all keeping with the Roaring 20's theme. Cocktail and Gatsby attire welcomed.

  Tickets are available for $50/each or tables of 10 are $450 at (, or at the School Board office at 2603 Charlton in Trenton before they sell out.

  The past events held at Grosse Ile Golf and Country Club was maxed out at 220 supporters.

   The Wall of Fame honors men and women who have made significant and lasting contributions to the quality of education in Trenton and THS graduates who have distinguished themselves in their professions. This year's inductees are 33rd District Court Judge Michael McNally and longtime Trenton educators Janice Misko and Dr. E. Lea Schelke.
