Ties & Tiaras, a fundraiser for Katy ISD’s KEYS Scholarship Program, will be held on Thursday, February 24, from 6 – 8 p.m. at Agave Road. This annual event is hosted to fund scholarships for graduating seniors who have participated in the district’s KEYS mentor program. The event will also recognize the Katy ISD KEYS mentors of the year, honoring their years of service and dedication to students.

Guests will be treated to hors d’oeuvres and beverages provided by Hasta La Pasta, and from 6 – 7:30 p.m. may bid on a beautiful collection of Katy ISD student artwork and gift baskets during a silent auction. The evening’s entertainment will be provided by Katy ISD high school performing arts students.

Joining Hasta La Pasta in supporting the KEYS Scholarship Program are Perry Cummins, H-E-B, Firethorne, Tradition Bank, Brazos Valley School Credit Union, Cotton Development LP, Members Choice Credit Union, Memorial Hermann Hospital Katy, Walmart, WoodGroup and Grand Vision.

Since its inception in 2006, the KEYS Scholarship Fund has awarded a total of $61,000 to graduating KEYS seniors. KEYS – Keep Encouraging Youth toward Success – is an initiative for children on the brink of success that matches a deserving child with a caring adult for one hour per week. KEYS and KEYS Scholarships are offered by Partners in Education, the Katy ISD department that brings the community into the classroom.
