The Educational Enrichment Foundation is excited to announce the
23rd Ray Davies Lifetime Humanitarian Achievement Award Luncheon.
Friday, October 28, 2022
11:00 am – 1:30 pm
Tucson Convention Center
Sponsorships and Underwriting opportunities are available. See Sponsorship Benefits here.
This year’s honorees are Sallie Marston and SKECHERS.
Sallie Marston, PhD, is the co-founder of the UA Community and School Gardens program. This program has installed gardens at 70 TUSD schools. The program connects public school students with Tucson’s 4,000-year agricultural legacy by planting, maintaining, and engaging in school gardens. Using gardens as dynamic educational tools, they help cultivate community, connect students with their local food system and use gardens as STEM learning labs, continuously educating thousands of K-12 students.
SKECHERS has been a generous partner in providing underprivileged TUSD students with 800 pairs of shoes. SKECHERS’ Tucson locations readily open their doors for Shoe Shopping Days, a special opportunity for TUSD students to select a new pair of shoes of their choice. The students leave excited and more confident to return to school ready to learn and play with proper comfortable shoes.
Funds raised at this community event enable EEF to continue our programs that expand and enrich student learning in TUSD. Visit “What We Do” to learn more about our programs.
We invite you to join us in honoring Sallie Marston and SKECHERS by sponsoring, and attending the Luncheon or making a gift in their honor.
