An evening for education
Attendees of the 7th Stars in the Sagebrush award and fundraiser celebration prepare for dinner during the biennial event at St. Thomas Academy, Feb. 28. Redmond Education Foundation, a non-profit staffed by a volunteer board, hosted the event, which honored Redmond citizens who work toward bettering Redmond’s education programs. Teachers, business owners and volunteers attended, and there was also live and silent auction, dinner, and music performed by the Ridgeview High School Band. “Its a rewarding night for the recipients of awards and I think the Redmond education community enjoys seeing their own honored for their service to the Redmond community,” said Allan Hudson, president of the Redmond Education Foundation. The proceeds of the auction, which accrued more than $15,000 during the 2013 event, go toward supporting students and the Redmond education community.
