13th Annual Signature Event @ Crystal Gardens
Nov 17 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Trenton Educational Foundation Ignites A Blast! For the Future

The Trenton Educational Foundation is holding the annual Signature Event on Friday, November 17, 2023, at Crystal Gardens in Southgate. The group hopes to host at least two hundred guests with anticipation of raising at least $70,000 for the Foundation.

“A Blast! For the Future, is our theme again this year,” said Kathy Kane, TEF Executive Director. “We will be featuring the many student initiatives that the TEF has funded the past years as well as honoring on our next Wall of Fame inductees.” Futuristic attire is encouraged, and the group is planning for a Blast! for its guests.

The OUT OF THIS WORLD program will include futuristic fun, raffles, silent auction, and a family style dinner, and a recap program of last year’s grants. The Wall of Fame committee also will induct new members that evening as well.

The Wall of Fame volunteer committee can induct a maximum of three people each year. They have inducted thirty people over eleven years. The recipients represent many Trenton High School graduates who have excelled in their chosen field of work. Many of the recipients were past Board Members, Superintendents, Principals and Teachers who made great contributions in making Trenton one of the best school systems in the state. Candidates must be separated with TPS for at least two years and not an active TPS employee to be considered. The ever-growing Wall of Fame is in the Trenton High School Lobby. Last year’s inductees were John Wukovits and the Trenton Rotary Club. Deadline is Sept. 1 to submit a Wall of Fame application.

Tickets are $50 a person or included with sponsorship packages (with sponsor seating) and tables of ten are encouraged. They are available at the School Board office and Trenton City Hall. Sponsorships are still available by calling Chair Kathy Kane (734) 365-0672.
