By LYNETTE HAALAND, Four Points News

Final numbers are still be tabulated, but it appears the Hill Country Education Foundation’s 4th annual Giddy Up Gala netted over $105,000 and far exceeding last year’s net of $74,000.

“We were excited to see so many new faces participate in this fundraising event as well as seeing the continued support of individuals for the past four years,” said Michelle Beck, HCEF’s vice president and Gala chair.


This year’s Fund-A-Need – “Making VHS a Top Rated School” – raised $21,800. These funds will be used to fund the school’s academic UIL teams, provide additional professional development to teachers and continue HCEF’s support for the school’s PSA team,

“It continues to be the social event of the year for the Four Points community, selling out 390 tickets in only 10 days,” Beck said.
