Gold Bar

Join Us on April 29, 2022, at Sandia Resort & Casino

At each Gold Bar, guests are introduced to the Selfless Seniors, some of the most community-minded students in Albuquerque Public Schools.  Two outstanding individuals are inducted into the APS Hall of Honor for their contributions to Albuquerque Public Schools and its students. The Foundation also recognizes an Outstanding Corporate Partner for their commitment to improving education. 

The reason for the event is to raise dollars for innovative programs in our schools, so guests also learn how community donations and our outstanding corporate partners have helped thousands of APS students as we share the stories of our Best In Class award nominees. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to gather in person in 2021 due to the pandemic.  We will continue to recognize excellence in education and raise funds through innovative fundraising programs throughout 2021 and look forward to meeting again in 2022. 

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