Gold Bar Gala

Gold Bar Gala Logo


The APS Education Foundation held it's first Gold Bar Gala on Friday, April 21st.   Guests met the 2017 Selfless Seniors, some of the most community-minded students in Albuquerque Public Schools. They also learned how community donations and our outstanding corporate partners have helped thousands of APS students as the Foundation honored some of its top "Best in Class" grant winners. We also learned more about the inaugural inductees into the APS Hall of Honor - an award of distinction for those who have made a positive and long-lasting impact on public education in Albuquerque.  Thanks to you, we raised over $57,000 for our grant programs.

Thank you to all our sponsors and guests for making the first Gold Bar Gala an evening to remember!



Together, we can make a statement about the overwhelming good that goes on in our schools every single day. For more information on the 2018 Gold Bar Gala, please contact Lawren McConnell at (505) 855-5273 or .
