SNL Theme Planned for Annual FTEF Dance

Dance Raised $67,000 Last Year


The 2016 Fort Thomas Education Dance and Silent Auction is Saturday, March 5th!  This year the theme is "Live from Fort Thomas...It's Saturday Night Live!"  What a fun opportunity to dress up as your favorite SNL character (The Sweeney Sisters, Spartan Cheer Leaders, Cave Man Lawyer, The Blues Brothers and Debbie Downer are just a few of the best).  This year, the dance will be held at the Mess Hall in Tower Park, 8pm - Midnight.  Musical guest will be The Naked Karate Girls!l

The Fort Thomas Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization raising money for the sole purpose of enhancing the education of students in all five of the public schools in Fort Thomas.  Money raised from the dance helps fund teacher grants, the endowment fund and other educational tools needed to help the students experience the next wave of learning.  Last year’s dance raised over $67,000.

Tara Halpin of Steinhauser says, "The Fort Thomas Independent Schools have been a significant part of the lives of my family for four generations. The pride I feel, when helping support the schools that will educate our children and prepare them for the future, is overwhelming. The FTEF is comprised of amazing volunteers who drive the changes we need in our schools and help build the foundation for our children's future."

The FTEF dance and silent auction is a much-anticipated annual celebration for friends and supporters that help grow the Fort Thomas Independent School District.  While the event is a terrific opportunity to dress up, have fun, enjoy good friends, bid on amazing silent auction items, enjoy delicious food and local libations, it also contributes to school programs and initiatives that are unable to be financed through the school district's operating budget.  We really hope you will join us!
