MIDLAND, TX-The 6th Annual Concert for Kids featuring the Doobie Brothers, and presented by Midland ISD's Education Foundation, will be held tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m. at the Chaparral Center at Midland College.
All the proceeds raised will be going toward the public school systems in Midland.
The Education Foundation has been around for 25-years and is meant to help support teachers and students in both the classroom and in furthering their education by giving out grants.
Craig Dawson, one of the board members of the foundation, says this is done in two ways.
"We give out grants for great ideas, which are the classroom ideas teachers come up with, and there's a grant for great minds where we will award teachers grants to further their education," said Dawson.
Dawson says this concert is their biggest fundraiser yet and is expected to be a hit!
Sponsored tables on the floor of the venue sold out quickly, but Dawson says they can use all the donations they can get.
"All that money goes to support the education foundation so we can give out more money for more ideas, and with the growth and student population, we're going to have more classrooms, more teachers, there's going to be more ideas, and so we need more money to help fund those ideas," said Dawson.
There are plenty of seats still available. Anyone who's interested in purchasing a ticket and learning more about this foundation can visit MidlandISD.net and click on the Education Foundation link.
