Thank you to all who attended the 8th Annual EdUCate! Oktoberfest on Saturday, October 1, 2016, and to all who donated to Dollar a Day!  Games, food, beverages, music, and the beer garden were enjoyed by many.  The book sale was hugely popular. Thank you to Dave Roberts for opening the event. Congratulations to Bill Pearson for winning the Principal’s Challenge for Standley Middle School. And thank you to our volunteers. We could not have done this without our wonderful volunteers.

All donations and event proceeds go directly to University City public schools for the 2016-2017 school year.  With your help we raised over $22,000 for UC schools!
