Tinsel & Trivia

Tinsel & Trivia Night 2019 was a huge success


What a FABULOUS night it was for the Foundation and ultimately the students and staff of Garland ISD! We raised over $121,000 in support of our vision of enriching education and rewarding innovation…which included the funding of 25 grants to GISD staff. We set the bar high after last year’s event was such a huge success and as GISD Superintendent, Dr. Ricardo López said ”we jumped over that bar”.

These were are the big winners of the evening:

  • 1st Place – GISD Cabinet
  • 2nd Place – Rowlett Chamber Foundation
  • Last Place – Oncor (they are already practicing for next year!)
  • Smartest City – City of Sachse

The big bidders on our live auction of dinner and wine with Dr. López and GISD Trustees Jed Reed and Wes Johnson were PBK Architects and Perdue Brandon Fielder Collins & Mott. It was neck and neck on the bidding so we ended up selling two dinners. We will have double the fun! We also sold another smaller dinner to Education Solution Services. A BIG thank you to these three companies for bidding!

Finally we want to give one more big THANK YOU to our sponsors. Your investment in the Foundation allows us to support GISD staff in their efforts to provide all students with an exception education.
