The Chillicothe Education Foundation fundraiser at the home of Ed Milbank raised $22,000 to assist the Chillicothe R-II School District in many ways. The fundraiser was held Wednesday night and Ed Douglas from the foundation says one reason for the event is to celebrate the Beacon and Teacher of the Year nominees and winners.
In addition, the foundation presents mini-grants of about $500, both in the fall and spring, to teachers in the district for use in their classrooms.
Douglas says the Foundation also helps the district in other ways.
Douglas thanked their host, Ed Milbank for providing his home as the venue for the event and the dinner for the evening.
