Stubbs Educational Foundation Mardi Gras Gala

Last year members of ETE, the Tallahassee Alumnae chapter, attended the Stubbs Educational Foundation Mardi Gras Ball, supporting a local alumna, and celebrating the arts (yay for MacDowell Month). It is that time of year again... if you are interested in attending let us know.. so far Amy Z, her hubs, Chris, Jenny Sue, her hubs, Marc, Britain and her fiance, Chris, are all planning on attending... we'd love to have you join us.

The Stubbs' Educational Foundation's is a non-profit created by Martha and Ron Stubbs to provide music scholarships for K-12th grade students in North Florida and South Georgia. To date, the foundation has awarded approximately 555 scholarships valued at $441,027.58 and has established 26 endowments. At least 70% of the scholarships go to financially need-based students and the remaining to merit recipients. The Mardi Gras Ball is just one way the Foundation raises money to fund music scholarships. The evening features dinner, live music, dancing, and live and silent auctions. This year’s Mardi Gras Ball is on February 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m at the Tallahassee Antique Car Museum. Current Foundation President Chuck Stubbs welcomes all interested in the Mardi Gras Ball or the Foundation to contact (850) 893-8782.
