10th Annual Gala

Join us Saturday, March 11 at the Partnership Party to help teachers create wonder in Stillwater Area Public Schools!

The Partnership Party is the sole fundraiser of the year for The Partnership Plan and provides funds for curriculum extras for students. In 2015-16, we funded 44 classroom grants to teachers worth more than $91,000. We funded Big Impact grants that sent all 4th graders to Orchestra Hall, provided computer coding instruction to all 2nd and 3rd graders in the District, and created a classroom of pottery wheels at the junior high level that can be used for community classes.  TPP continues to fund the Fabrication Lab at Stillwater Area High School and to provide Da Vinci Fest, an art and science fair for students that has grown into a free community event celebrating art and science.

Our 10th Annual Gala is Saturday, March 11, at 5:30 p.m., at Envision Event Center (formerly The Prom Center) in Oakdale. You can register individually ($75), or purchase a table for 10 ($750).  Teachers and staff of Stillwater Area Public Schools are invited to register for the discounted price of $50. If you can’t join us, please consider a tax-deductible donation to help support our mission to bring educational opportunities to teachers and students throughout the year!

2016 was a spectacular reboot of our big fundraiser. Formerly Jeans & Jewels, the Partnership Party featured gourmet food stations staffed by chefs, more time for socializing, new games and music for dancing. And let’s not forget the Candy Bar!

Our generous attendees pledged nearly $34,000 to support our new Big Impact Arts and Big Impact Technology grants, with the entire night raising nearly $75,000 to help teachers create wonder in the classroom. Thank you!
