The Henrico Education Foundation’s fourth annual Excellence in Education Celebration was an exciting evening that highlighted workforce and career development in Henrico County and showcased the work of the foundation and Henrico County Public Schools to empower #LifeReady students. The Foundation hosted more than 550 attendees at the event on Thursday, April 11, 2024, at the Dewey Gottwald Center, and raised a record $400,000 of unrestricted funds in a single event - thanks, in large part, to our amazing 68 business sponsors.
