Great Gifts Dinner Auction Diamond Masquerade Event A Night To Remember
The Great Gifts Dinner Auction Diamond Masquerade event was held at Weymouth Country Club. Everyone enjoyed a delicious dinner, silent and live auction items, a dessert auction and casino tables. A record 300 people attended the event which was the 10th Dinner Auction celebrated by the Foundation. Many thanks to all those who supported, contributed and volunteered to make this year's event a night to remember.
Who We Are
Established in 2000, The Highland Foundation is an independent, non-profit community organization that supports enrichment programs in the Highland Local School District. The Foundation is a separate entity from the Highland Board of Education. All decisions are made with the input and direction of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. This Board is comprised of elected community members who are dedicated to providing the leadership to implement those projects that will benefit Highland students and the greater community at-large.
The mission of The Highland Foundation for Educational Excellence is to acquire and distribute resources to Highland Local Schools to enhance, enrich and supplement learning opportunities for its students, staff and community. We achieve this by providing direct support for student development, encouraging staff excellence and creativity, promoting the school district as a center for community learning, and helping build a strong school partnership.
