The Sacramento Unified Education Foundation sponsored its first ever Teachers Appreciation Gala at Memorial Auditorium on May 19 which honored 106 teachers.

Inspiring teacher nominees included educators from all grade levels across the district. 

Sponsors included Intel Corporation, the Sacramento City Teachers Association, Sierra Health Foundation, Clear Channel, Lozano Smith, Moroch, School Financial Credit Union, SMUD, Western Health Advantage and California Family Fitness.

The Foundation’s inaugural event raised more than $6,000 which will be used to fund educational programs and activities in the district. Organizers expect that amount to increase in future years.
