Gold Bar Gala

The second annual Gold Bar Gala took place on April 27, 2018

 This year, guests were introduced to the 2018 Selfless Seniors, some of the most community-minded students in Albuquerque Public Schools.  We also celebrated 10 years of Selfless Seniors with Frank Frost Photography!  Two outstanding individuals were inducted into the APS Hall of Honor for their contributions to Albuquerque Public Schools and its students. Guests also learned how community donations and our outstanding corporate partners have helped thousands of APS students as we recognized our Best In Class award nominees. The 2018 Best In Class nominees received a combined $30,000 from Foundation donors to continue and expand their programs next year.  Learn more about all our honorees and their contributions to education by clicking on the links in the navigation tree on the left of the page.

Sponsors, donors and volunteers came together on April 27, 2018 and raised over $70,000 to fund innovative programs next school year.  Click on the image below to view pictures from the event.
