Pinellas Education Foundation has raised approximately $400,000 to support the Take Stock in Children Scholarship Program, from generous donations, and the Ties and Tennis Shoes Gala and 5K held December 6 and 7. The Ties and Tennis Shoes Gala was attended by approximately 650 people including 10 holiday parties from Bank of America, DITEK, Nielson, Horace Mann Insurance, The Kiwanis Club of St. Petersburg, Mercury New Media, the Junior League of St. Petersburg, St. Pete Glitter Queens, St. Pete’s Promise and Liberty Ceiling and Drywall. Rays players Matt Joyce, Brandon Gomes and Jake McGee were on hand as honorary co-chairs. Attendees dressed in cocktail attire but completed their look with tennis shoes, while enjoying delicious cuisine. They spent time in the ‘Tis the Season Shoppes where a variety of vendors sold gifts of all kinds. They bid on a silent auction, visited craft beer tables, and had some fun with games such as an inflatable obstacle course, table tennis, battle bots, slap shot hockey, baseball, basketball and much more.
