Because of You…Launching Futures Regional STEM Education Awards Dinner was a Great a Success!
On March 11, 2020 STARBASE celebrated the accomplishments of many STEM heroes along with a full house of attendees. We raised over $22,000 in net proceeds during our Inaugural Launching Futures Regional STEM Education Awards Dinner.
During the event, we announced our new scholarship program in the best way possible! If you were there, you probably got a little emotional over the video of instructors and students explaining their passion for STEM. We couldn’t let a good opportunity pass us by, so we placed pledge cards on the tables and with Dr. Bracy tugs and Bill Hayden’s announcement of a $5000 match from STARBASE toward the end of the night, our smiling Starbase student volunteers collected donations of cash, checks and pledge cards in their baskets.
The audience responded with over $8101.46 in support of the STARBASE scholarship program! We are currently finalized the criteria for the scholarships, the plan and processes, and the continuing promotion of the fund. More to come!
