Friends of Renton Schools fundraiser set for April 28
April 24, 2014
NEW — 10:50 a.m. April 24, 2014
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.
The Friends of Renton Schools’ mission is to develop a sustainable funding resource that bridges the gap between federal and state funding for schools, so students can obtain an exceptional, world-class education.
The breakfast begins at 7 a.m. at the Renton Pavilion Event Center, 233 Burnett Ave. S.
