Event Details

The Hayward Education Foundation invites you to dust off your top hats and fringe, put on your dancing shoes, and get ready for a night of dancing, entertainment and socializing.  Inspired by Jay Gatsby and his roaring parties, this gala is sure to impress with live music from a variety of Hayward bands, a Photo Booth, no-host cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a candy bar, silent auction and a dance floor!  Party goers dressed in 1920's theme will receive a free cocktail ticket.

Join the fun on Friday, April 4th at CSU East Bay from 5:30-8:30. Tickets are $60 each. Visit http://www.haywarded.org/ or email penny@haywarded.org for tickets and sponsorship options. 

"Last year, the Hayward Education Foundation was able to fund over 76 percent of the grant requests we received, and that felt good," says President of the Hayward Education Foundation, Dianne McDermott. "We were able to bridge a gap with some of the funding losses from the State of California. We would like to do more, and we can with the support of all the components in our community," she adds.

McDermott explains, "This year's [gala] theme is ‘Dream Big.’ We want to send a message that big dreams and bright futures are possible for all Hayward Students and Teachers and that the job of educating the students in our community is not the single responsibility of the schools; it's a combined effort. If you're a business, you want to be able to hire from within the community, but you have to have a pool of qualified people." 

In 1983, a Hayward school teacher, Elaine Adams, was inspired to help teachers improve and expand academic opportunities for Hayward’s students.  Over thirty years later, nearly 920 grants totaling over $830,000 have been awarded, benefiting thousands and thousands of our hopeful youth.  Projects are as diverse as the imaginations of our teachers and students.  Whether it is math, language skills, science, or the arts, these projects expand the learning ability of students in ways that go beyond the limitations of the budget.

Support Hayward students, education and the community while having a lot of fun. Attend the Great Gatsby Gala and dare to ‘Dream Big’!
