The Spring Hill ISD Education Foundation's annual fundraiser was Tuesday evening featuring magician Diamond Jim Taylor.
Amy Riestenberg, executive director of the foundation, said the event at The Reserve also included dinner and live and silent auctions.
Money raised at the event goes to fund grants to teachers for extra classroom materials that their regular budgets don't cover. The grants must pertain to one of two initiatives: technology or staff development.
Among the projects funded in the past have been overhead projectors installed in the ceilings and an on-site workshop by education consultant Debbie Diller. The foundation has funded about $360,000 in grants since it began awarding them in 2006, and the goal for this year's event is $25,000.
