Burien Brat Trot
Brat Trot is a true community celebration that brings out the fun in all of us and it also raises critical funds for Highline Schools Foundation. Brat Trot is a flat and fast 5k and one-mile race throughout the streets of Burien followed by Bavarian Fest, the best street party around! (Family Friendly!)

CAUSEmopolitan is a new, sophisticated, and unique fundraising event showcasing some of the Highline Schools Foundation’s most impactful programs. 2017 was a wonderful evening at Cedarbrook Lodge with a great group of Highline Schools Foundation supporters in the room. We look forward to another great event in 2018.

Gold Star Awards BASH
A gold star award is a great honor. These awards provide our community the opportunity to honor those in our schools and district who have shown outstanding support of students and education and who give all of us inspiration and direction. The BASH! is our time to honor and celebrate everyone who is nominated. . (21 and over event)

Gold Star Awards Breakfast
Each year, the Gold Star Awards Breakfast is a much-anticipated celebration and fundraiser to benefit the Highline Schools Foundation, which is the only nonprofit organization supporting all Highline Public Schools. Since 1999, the Highline Schools Foundation has been supporting innovation and excellence in Highline Public Schools and directly supporting students in our district in areas where state funding cannot.

Oktoberfest Dinner & Auction
Oktoberfest includes dinner, entertainment and a great silent and live auction! This annual fundraiser supports students in our district in the areas of arts, athletics, classroom innovation, college readiness and other areas of need.  Our Oktoberfest is a German Beer Hall Style party with food from The Tin Room, drinks by Georgetown Brewing, live entertainment, a great auction and of course, a few surprises!

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Scholarship Charity Golf Tournament
STIA Golf Tournament - Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey2017 marks the 17th anniversary of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Charity Golf Tournament to benefit Highline Schools Foundation’s scholarship fund.

Proceeds from this fun and lively event enable Highline Schools Foundation to provide substantial college scholarships to bright, capable and hard-working students who would never be able to attend college without financial help. Our students and their families are forever grateful for the sponsors, golfers, volunteers and donors who support and participate in the STIA Golf Tournaments.

In 2011, The Highline Schools Foundation introduced the Highline Schools Foundation Symposium Series — a bi-annual event at which the Foundation brings education-related issues to our community for reflection and dialogue.

Sponsorships benefit every student, in every classroom, every day!
