Rent a Tux for Prom, Help Teachers & Students
For the fifth consecutive year, Suits Unlimited is donating $10 from every tuxedo rental for prom to the APS Education Foundation through Tuxes 4 Teachers.
The Albuquerque Public Schools Education Foundation and Join-A-School are teaming up once again this prom season with local family-owned business Suits Unlimited to help raise money for APS teachers and students through Tuxes 4 Teachers.
With every tuxedo rented at Suits Unlimited, 5406 Menaul Blvd. NE, Tuxes 4 Teachers contributes $10 toward the Seeds of Learning grant program helping teachers update and enhance curriculum and access much-needed materials and classroom activities. Teachers have often paid for such expenses out of their own pockets.
"It's the kind of partnership we want to do more of, and we're grateful to the folks at Suits Unlimited for being a part of it," said Foundation Executive Director Phill Casaus.
“In the past five years we have donated over $9,000 to this program. This has been made possible through the Tuxes 4 Teachers partnership," said Steven Garcia of Suits Unlimited, himself a graduate of Sandia High School. "We're looking forward to continuing to make this a great success.”
