A great night of fun in support of an amazing cause.

The Melissa Education Foundation hosted its first Gala in 2008 and has hosted it annually ever since. The Give Them Wings Gala is a night of fun designed to bring our educators, our local businesses, and members of our community together to support the Melissa School system.

Gala attendees enjoy great food, wine, and beer while playing blackjack, roulette, and craps to win raffle tickets for the raffle drawing at the end of the night. For those attendees looking for something a little more exciting, the yearly Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament is always a big hit. Finally, the Live Auction always has a great selection of items and packages to choose from with all proceeds going to fund scholarships and grants.


  • You missed out on the fun this year, but don’t worry! You can always attend the next MEF Gala, coming in September/October 2018.
