During the event, participants also will hear remarks from special honorees, and celebrate the 2021 Legacy Awards.

During the event, winners will be announced and all nominees will be recognized.
Community support for EP schools
“The Red & Black Gala is an opportunity for our community to come together in support of our Eden Prairie students,” said Lisa Sisinni, FEPS executive director.
“Dollars raised reach Eden Prairie students of all ages and allow us to support our earliest learners as they prepare for kindergarten, provide STEM tools to enhance 21st century learning, and ensure we meet the social and emotional needs of our students, ” according to Sisinni. “We invite the community to join us and be reminded of what makes our community and school district great.”
