A Gift for Teaching Back to School Blast

A playdate anytime with A Gift for Teaching?!

We’re THERE.

A nighttime playdate with delicious food, libations, entertainment and special guests including Mario Lopez, Chris Kirkpatrick, former Orlando Magic players Nick Anderson and Bo Outlaw, and Matt Austin from WKMG?

We’re TOTALLY in!

A Gift for Teaching Back to School Blast

With support from Wells Fargo and the Westgate Resorts Foundation, A Gift for Teaching’s Back to School Blast will be held on Saturday, April 18, from 6:30 – 10:30 p.m. at the Rosen Shingle Creek, and will help 180,000 kids in need. A Gift for Teaching distributes $55,000 of free product daily, and you could imagine with so many in need, this goes really fast.

A Gift for Teaching’s Back to School Blast will have an old school (ha!) ‘playroom’ with oversized games for the kid in you, and a signature martini bar and a bunch of silent auction opportunities for your inner adult! “It’s the best party in town and an opportunity to share and celebrate everything AGFT has accomplished this year, as we look forward to goals we have for the next school year,”  said Marisa Worley, AGFT’s Director of Development.

I was never good at math but I have a healthy respect for its place in our world. (Yes, as I’ve learned, even Algebra serves a purpose!) Here’s a really easy equation that even I can remember:  (T+t) / (S + s) x (f) = AGFT.

Teachers + tools / Students + supplies x future = A Gift for Teaching!

(T)eachers need (t)ools to teach.

(S)tudents need (s)upplies to learn, especially in our fast growing, digital world.

Today’s kids will one day take the reigns and lead the way to our (f)uture…

Think of (A Gift for Teaching) as their catalyst.

…so I’m no John Nash, but you get the point.
