Community leaders Jarett and Dara Levan and Dwight and Dinah Stephenson and BrightStar Credit Union were honored for their impact on education and contributions to student achievement in Broward County at the recent Broward Education Foundation Black & White Gala that celebrated 32 years of educational excellence.
Proceeds from the $116,000 raised during the Gala benefit the Broward Education Foundation which provides support for innovative teaching to increase student learning outcomes from pre-K to grade 12; educational materials for Title 1 school students; scholarships for qualified graduating high school seniors; and fiduciary oversight for community members who join in the educational mission by establishing Foundation agency funds.
Phyllis Schiffer-Simon chaired the Gala and honorary chairs were Broward County Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie and School Board Chair Donna Korn.
Toyota of Hollywood donated $200 for every car sold to a Broward School System employee during the month preceding the Gala as part of its sponsorship,
which totaled $3,500.
Established in 1983, the nonprofit Broward Education Foundation (BEF) aligns with Broward County Public Schools and contributes more than two million dollars to Broward County schools, serving as the catalyst for educational excellence.
