DEARBORN, Michigan – Funding Opportunities & Resources in Education hit its mark again this year. F.O.R.E. Dearborn, a signature community event Co-Chaired by Dearborn’s Mayor O’Reilly and the Superintendent of Dearborn Public Schools Brian Whiston, is fast becoming the City of Dearborn’s strongest fundraiser for the school district.
F.O.R.E. Dearborn raised over $91,000 again this year. This is a tremendous amount of money that will directly impact the classrooms, teachers and more importantly the students of Dearborn Public Schools. Brian Mosallam, Chairman of Dearborn Education Foundation has been devoted to transforming the organization and says this about F.O.R.E. Dearborn:
“Everyone will agree that fundraising today is not easy. In my opinion, that is not the only thing we do though. Eddie Fakhoury has led the charge in making sure that partnerships are created and long-term relationships are being built. This event is a perfect example of the confidence our community, corporate supporters and donors have in us. To accomplish raising over $90,000 two years in a row from an outing that use to generate around $36,000 is proof. It’s also showcased by the wonderful investment of time that our Mayor and Superintendent extend to this event!”
It is agreed that a lot goes into making this event a success. However, it’s through the investment our community, sponsors, and individual donors make in the Dearborn Education Foundation that allows for this event to reach the success it has. The Board of Directors of the Dearborn Education Foundation, the entire F.O.R.E. Dearborn committee, the teachers, and most importantly the students in the Dearborn Pubic Schools extend their most sincere thanks and appreciation to:
