Good food and a good cause combine at next week’s GISD Educational Foundation fundraising event, the Seaside Spring Soiree. Add in the premiere of a historic venue, and suddenly guests might be swiveling their heads, torn between taking in the details of the restoration and checking out the appetizers passing by.

The appetizers are some of the specialties from Mario’s Seawall Italian Restaurant. “The passed appetizers will be tuna skewers, mini shrimp cocktails and bruschetta,” said Danny Hart, a principal partner in the Galveston Restaurant Group, which includes Mario’s. “Later, there will be a buffet, but we want to keep people mingling by circulating with appetizers for them.”

Our County’s independent school districts we have been blessed and fortunate to have had the continued support of our education foundations.

Since 1992 when Clear Creek Independent School District established its education foundation, six Galveston County independent school districts have thriving education foundations. These are: Friendswood (1999), Texas City (1999), Galveston (2002), Dickinson (2007), Santa Fe (2010) and Hitchcock (2019).

One key reason for their continued success is that the education foundation model is effective. Congratulations!
