Public Education Foundation Gala

Supporters of public education were honored at the Education Hero Award gala at the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas.

The Public Education Foundation’s 22nd annual event recognized Gov. Brian Sandoval (Education Hero Award), Don Snyder (Lifetime Education Achievement Award) and Hannah Brown (Champion of the Children Award) for their dedication to children and public education.

Student performers entertained the more than 450 guests, who also bid on items offered in the silent and live auctions. Approximately $600,000 was raised during the event.

Proceeds will support initiatives and programs designed to improve public education.
