The York Foundation for Public Education (YFPE) would like to thank the community, volunteers, and Village Events, LTD for supporting the Blues, Brews, & BBQ Festival on May 7 in Yorktown.

The nearly $7,600 in proceeds raised from this event will go toward grants and scholarships to students and teachers in the York County School Division. These grants and scholarships are not otherwise available outside of the Foundation's resources. Some of these initiatives include: Innovative Instructional Grants, Whole School Improvement Grants, Teacher, Para-Educator, and Employee Scholarships, and Student Resource Development Grants.

The YFPE, students, and staff of the York County School Division extend their appreciation for the support of the Blues Brews & BBQ. Mark your calendars for next year's festival on May 6, 2017.
