Blue Jean Ball Hosted by Needville Education Foundation

Shelley Krauss.

In five short years, the Needville Education Foundation (NEF) has awarded over $220,000.00 in educational resources to the classrooms in the Needville Independent School District. Executive Director Shelley Krauss, under the direction and assistance of Superintendent Curtis Rhodes, established NEF to bridge the gap between the limited budgets in our classrooms and help aide the teachers in bringing new ideas and resources to teach our students every day.  The success and response the district campuses has been outstanding.

Fort Bend has been supportive to Needville and the journey the education foundation has taken.  On January 18th, the foundation will host its 5th Blue Jean Ball at the Columbus Club Hall on Hwy. 36 in Needville.  The venue has been the main gathering place for many benefits, weddings and events in the growing Needville community.

The Blue Jean Ball opens the doors at 5 pm to preview many silent auction items.  At 6 pm, guests will enjoy a catered buffet BBQ dinner from Schulzes’ BBQ, followed by a live auction with auctioneer Shorty Yeaman. The evening concludes with dancing with DJ Seth Sacra.

To support the Foundation and Needville ISD teachers, please contact the NEF office at 979-793-4308 or visit 16227 Hwy. 36 in Needville. Needville Education Foundation is a non-profit 501c3 organization. The committee is looking for live and silent auction items, and all profits made during the Blue Jean Ball go directly back into NISD classrooms, grades Pre K-12, including the fine arts and special needs.
