The 37th Annual STARS Gala Auction was a great success, thanks to you!

With your generosity, we are thrilled to announce that together we raised over $870,000 in gross revenue! This amount includes $280,000 for the Making a Difference campaign, which surpassed our goal of $250,000!

We owe a debt of gratitude to our EC families for your generous spirit and tremendous support.

We also want to thank all our generous donors, EC supporters and sponsors for making the Gala an unforgettable event.

Many companies such as Microsoft, Costco, Google, Apple, Boeing, Alaska Airlines, BECU, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Merrill Lynch, Nintendo, Nordstrom, SAP, Starbucks and Salesforce offer matching gift programs as an employee benefit. Matching gift programs expand the impact of your donations. Please take a moment to check with your employer and take advantage of this generous program!

And lastly, if you haven’t already done so, we hope you will consider donating online to help offset the cost of the Gala or to the Making a Difference campaign to support our students! 

Thank you for helping us "Reach for the STARS!"
