Registration closes this Friday at noon for your opportunity to celebrate CEA’s 175 years and raise money for children in need. The CEA Celebrates Gala Fundraiser takes place Friday, September 29, at the DoubleTree in Bristol to recognize CEA members’ years of elevating and advocating on behalf of the teaching profession.
CEA will be honoring five education champions: Rep. Jeff Currey, Rep. Kathleen McCarty, Guilford Superintendent Paul Freeman, former NEA-Danbury, CEA, and NEA President Bob Chase, and Manchester teacher and CEA Board of Directors member Katie Grant.
A fundraiser for the Connecticut Education Foundation (CEF), the nonprofit arm of CEA, the evening includes a cocktail reception, awards, dinner, and dancing. All proceeds support CEF’s many charitable programs, providing college scholarships, holiday gifts and everyday essentials for children in need, and emergency assistance for teachers facing catastrophic illness or other hardships.
Local Associations can become Gold or Silver Apple Sponsors with a full or partially reserved table and recognition in the program booklet.
If you have connections at any local businesses, reach out and let them know they can honor educators by becoming sponsors of this special fundraising gala.
Single tickets are also available.
Come out for a good cause—we look forward to seeing you there!
