Presented by Highland Capital Management, the Third-annual event to award tens of thousands in scholarship dollars to graduating EIF Scholars.
Education is Freedom (EIF), Dallas’ leading college planning and career-readiness provider, will hold its third-annual fundraiser and scholarship reception – An Evening with the Stars – on Thursday, April 26, from 7-10 p.m. at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. The event provides a unique opportunity to recognize and reward EIF Scholars from 19 Dallas ISD schools by investing in their future. At last year’s inaugural event, 130 EIF scholars from 14 Dallas ISD schools received scholarships ranging from $100-$5,000. These scholarship dollars help students cover college expenses not traditionally funded by financial aid.
Thanks to the continued generosity of Highland Capital Management, the scholarship reception will honor 190 Dallas ISD seniors in the EIF Scholars Program who will be recognized and receive personalized scholarships.
Event chairs are business leader and politician Tom Leppert, former Mayor of Dallas and his philanthropic wife, Laura.
“It has been so rewarding to work with Education is Freedom (EIF) because EIF has the infrastructure through their various programming to go into schools, identify kids and help expose them to what an education can get them. I am extremely excited to celebrate this year’s graduating EIF Scholars at An Evening with the Stars!” – Tom Leppert
The sponsorship program featuring Tom Leppert and wife Laura Leppert will be held from 7-8 p.m. Guests are then free to enjoy the Perot Museum until 10 p.m. Light hors d'oeuvres will be served. The Perot Museum is located at 2201 N. Field St. in Dallas. For sponsorships or tickets contact Debbie Richman, via email: email@example.com or 214.432.8550.
