Scholarship Gala

March 28, 2019

Our 1st Annual Scholarship Gala was an amazing success. An event like this hinges on the commitment and efforts of many. Thank you to this year’s Gala Committee, Lisa Barton, Marsha Bartulec, Brittany McLachlan and Courtney McLachlan, for undertaking this effort. Thank you to all our Sponsors and all those that attended and supported our school and Scholarship fund. Special thanks to our live auctioneer, Lonnie Hetterle.

We are looking forward to our 2nd annual Gala in 2020.

At Vista Ridge Academy we provide wholistic Christ-centered elementary education, encouraging children to think creatively and critically, problem-solve and explore, collaborate with others, and develop strong character in accordance with our core values. The diversity of our student body—geographically (from several counties), ethnically, and socioeconomically—is wholly attributable to our Scholarship Fund, which provides financial aid to approximately 35 percent of the student body.

The Vista Ridge Academy Scholarship Gala will become a wonderful tradition for our organization. It is a terrific way to enjoy a fun-filled evening while supporting excellence in education in Colorado. Proceeds from the evening’s event are used to help students financially who wish to obtain a Christian education.  Our goal for this year is to increase our overall contributions to our Scholarship fund.
