March 21, 2018 - SKI Plano Lifts the Plano ISD Education Foundation Off to a Great Start for 2018

SKI Plano

SKI Plano stands for Supporting Kids In Plano and that's exactly what the Plano ISD Education Foundation does. For over 23 years, SKI Plano has been the largest fundraiser for the foundation. Funds go towards supporting innovative grants written by our Plano ISD teachers through Grants to Educators

On February 3 with more than 630 people attending, a sold-out Plano ISD Education Foundation's SKI Plano event broke a 22-year fundraising record. "2018 SKI Plano Chair, Leslie Newman and her team knocked this event out of the park! They exceeded fundraising goals and the dollars raised through this event will benefit the teachers and students in Plano ISD," said Ken Hutchenrider, President of the Plano ISD Education Foundation Board. "It was an energetic and exciting evening and we are so appreciative to Leslie for all that she and her committee did to create such a memorable event."
