The Woodland Schools Foundation presents the 5th Annual Burgers and Brew dinner on Thursday, April 2 at the Woodland Community & Senior Center.  This event is a fundraiser for Woodland public schools and last year provided essential funding for musical instruments and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) instructional kits.

“All event proceeds go directly to our local students.  Our funding focus is designed to help support classroom teaching and extra-curricular activities that benefit all students,” said Kathy Aukes, the foundation’s president.  “Woodland has a strong sense of community and Burgers and Brew brings people together to celebrate our dedication to public education and our young people,” Aukes said.

The event’s activities will include a social hour with a silent auction starting at 5:30pm and dinner at 6:00pm.  The dinner menu includes: gourmet hamburgers, potato salad, green salad, beans, beer and wine.  Woodland and Pioneer High School students help prepare the salads, desserts and flower arrangements. Tickets are $25 each or $35 at the door.

Tickets are available at Woodland school sites, National Town and Valley Properties and online at www.brownpapertickets.com  If you have any questions, would like to be a sponsor or need tickets, please contact Tania Garcia-Cadena at (530) 401-8346, taniagc@sbcglobal.net or go to the Woodland Schools Foundation Facebook page for additional information.

The Woodland Schools Foundation, a local nonprofit completely operated by volunteers, was formed by a group of parents and community members who shared a commitment to maintaining and supporting Woodland public schools.
