EdUCate! Events Throughout the Year
EdUCate! events are major fundraising opportunities that integrate both the community and schools. Below are some of our major events.
Taste of the Triangle is back! Join us Friday May 6th, 2022. Taste is the premier restaurant tasting event in the Golden Triangle area. Taste samplings from local restaurants, bid on items in the Silent Auction (online 1 week before the event), donate at the $500 level and receive 2 VIP tickets. This will be an outside event.
Oktoberfest is a great way to welcome families and teachers back to school in the fall. This annual event promotes community support for our UC schools as well as awareness about the mission of the EdUCate! Foundation.
Be sure to donate for the Dollar-A-Day (DAD) campaign at $180 or more to receive VIP benefits (unlimited pours for two adults in the beer garden).
Sadly, COVID prevented us from holding our Taste of the Triangle event in 2020. Instead, enjoy Taste of the Triangle Restaurant Week – July 11-18, 2020. Take a break from cooking. No tickets! No percentage for EdUCate! Just support our wonderful Taste of the Triangle restaurants by ordering Take Out or Dining Outside. See our restaurant line up and links to their websites.
For the 2020 Fall Fundraising event, Educate! is offering Fund the UC Five in lieu of our usual Oktoberfest. It is an online auction beginning Oct. 10 – Oct. 18, 2020. Check it out here —> Go to the Auction. We encourage you to bid on multiple items since you never know who will out bid you. Also, if you aren’t a Dollar-A-Day donor yet, consider doing it today. With every $365 donation you support one full classroom for a full year (one teacher and 30 students) through EdUCate!
