Alameda Education Foundation held its yearly gala, “Salute to Education,” last Friday at Rock Wall Wine Co. on Alameda Point. And this Sunday, it’s hosting its second-annual Run 4 Education along Shoreline Drive.
The hard work and efforts of many volunteers were celebrated on April 17, and the impact of many innovative programs was acknowledged as well, according to Vicki Sedlack of AEF.
AEF recognized a long list of individuals and groups, which we can’t fully include here, unfortunately.
Many businesses have given generously of their resources, and this year’s Tricia Collins-Levi Business Award went to Rock Wall Wine Co. and Angela’s Bistro.
