"Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be," Rita Pierson.
The Mt. Vernon Education Foundation is proud to introduce the "Black and Gold Gala" a signature fundraising event in supporting excellence in public education for every student, every day through grants, programs and initiatives that directly benefit the Mt. Vernon School District. We hope you will join us on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at the Indianapolis Downtown Marriott as we engage the community's spirit of generosity to ensure the continuation of a top-notch school district.
