The Friends of Renton Schools will host its fifth annual benefit breakfast, headlined by speaker Randy Gardiner, on April 28.
Gardiner is the president, CEO and chairman of the locally based Red Dot Corp., the leading manufacturer of heaters and air conditioners for commercial and military vehicles.
The benefit is the main fundraiser for the school foundation that provides supplemental funding to support the Renton School District. This year, donations will go toward the new funding priorities in STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
The breakfast is free, although there is an opportunity to donate. Donations to the organization are 100 percent tax deductible. Read more »
SportsPatriots blow out rival Highlanders, 10-0
It doesn’t have the same energy as the football or basketball rivalries, but anytime Liberty and Hazen high schools meet on the diamond, it’s always a battle between familiar foes.
