MISD scholarship gala set for March 29

The seventh annual Menominee Indian School District Scholarship Gala will take place on March 29 at the Menominee Casino & Resort Conference Center from 5-9 p.m.

All proceeds go to MISD’s scholarship fund. With the help of countless sponsors and donors over the last six years, the MISD has raised more than $135,000 in scholarship funds, resulting in 88 scholarships for students pursuing post-secondary education.

The event features nonstop activities including meat raffles, bucket raffles, dinner, a live auction and first-hand accounts from MIHS alumni on how scholarships had a positive impact on their ability to stay in school.

The gala committee is now accepting sponsorships for the gala, including event, meat wheel, dessert, live auction and corporate table sponsors. Sponsorships range from $600 for a corporate/organization table to $3,000 for event sponsors. Sponsors receive promotional consideration, signage and tickets to the event.

“Each year, more of our students are choosing to pursue secondary education, which is fantastic, but many struggle to stay in school because of lack of financial resources,” said MISD Superintendent Wendell Waukau. “We rely on the community stepping forward to help raise scholarship dollars to ensure these students’ success and help them achieve their dreams of a degree.”
