Treasures for Education 2016 was held on February 20 at the JW Marriott. A huge thank you to everyone who attended or donated items! This year’s event raised over $30,000 for the students of Pike schools. Marianne Lyles was fantastic as our guest speaker, and Rami Benhameda and Molly Denning inspired the crowd with the story of the Maggie Harry Memorial Scholarship, and how your donations go to fund this and many other scholarships for Pike seniors attending college. We hope to see you (and all of your friends!) for Treasures for Education 2016.
