Katy/Fulshear’s Firethorne Kindles the Spirit of Community Through Katy I.S.D. KEYS Program
Firethorne kindles the spirit of community in Katy/Fulshear by providing KEYS (Keep Encouraging Youth toward Success) adult role models and student scholarships. Katy Independent School District KEYS volunteers -- one mentor per student one hour per week -- help motivate, encourage and inspire students in the Katy/Fulshear area.
The residential real estate community Firethorne (www.firethorne.info), a contributor to KEYS Scholarships since the program’s inception in 2006, is helping underwrite the February 19 “Ties & Tiaras” benefit dinner, (www.kisdwebs.katyisd.org/Communications/TiesandTiaras) and also has donated a $2,000 KEYS college scholarship.
“Because we have companies like Firethorne, the money goes directly to the scholarships,” said Katy ISD Partners in Education Specialist Martha Brown.
The benefit will be held from 6-8 p.m. at Aguave Road, 1010 FM 1463 in Katy with food provided by Hasta La Pasta. Tickets, $25 per person in advance and $40 per person at the door, include hors d’oeuvres, beverages and student entertainment. There will be a silent auction of Katy ISD student artwork with all proceeds benefiting scholarships for the 2009 KEYS graduating seniors (13 in 2009.) For “Ties & Tiaras” information or reservations, go to www.kisdwebs.katyisd.org/Communications/TiesandTiaras.
