Go Incognito for the Fort Thomas Education Foundation
It is time again for what has become the social event of the year in Fort Thomas - the annual Fort Thomas Education Foundation Dance. The event this year is on Saturday night February 26th at the Syndicate in Newport. The theme this year is "incognito" which basically means you can dress up as anyone without the restrictions of a generational theme.
Tickets are $30 but soon to be $40 if you wait too long to purchase and the event features a good local band - the Karate Girls (formerly named the Naked Karate Girls - I guess the name was limiting their booking capabilities). You can visit their website (linked above) and order tickets online.
The education foundations is a critical component of what makes our school system successful in the face of a funding formula that penalizes the district (for background see my recent post about the school systems budget). Proceeds from this event benefit our teacher grant program. To date we have been able to award over $337,000 in technology, books, equipment and programs to our schools through our teacher grant program.
If you have never been to a foundation dance it is truly an experience - local celebrities, all different backgrounds, and no one is afraid to loosen up and have a good time. Sign up now for a good time.
