Forest Hills Foundation Gala

Gala Chairs – Colin and Katey Hamilton


The Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation is hosting its largest fundraiser, the Gala, on Thursday, November 10, 2022, at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. Please join Colin and Katey Hamilton, this year’s Gala chairpersons, as we come together as one community to fund student success. Through your involvement and support of the foundation, you help all FHPS learners achieve their potential.

Community support enables the foundation to distribute approximately $300,000 annually to support initiatives and creative programs that inspire our students to new levels of success. You are an invaluable partner to our students’ future, and we cannot do this important work without you.

The Gala on November 10 begins at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour. The dinner and program begin at 7 p.m. followed by desserts and a post Gala social hour at 9 p.m. While attending the Gala, guests have the opportunity to support one or more of over 20 FHPS schools and district programs through our Support our Schools initiative. You can help fund specific needs identified by school principals and directors to enhance learning. The night will also highlight an outstanding teaching team of the year, our love for education, and much more!
