Flat Mike at the Friendswood Education Foundation Gala

The Friendswood Education Foundation’s “Small Town Saturday Night” Gala was a huge success over the weekend, raising $78,000 through the Live Auction alone.

One of the items on the block, for the third year running, was Dinner with an Astronaut courtesy of our very own Mike Foreman. Unfortunately, Mike was unable to attend the Gala this year due to a schedule conflict, so he sent a proxy: a six foot tall cardboard cutout named Flat Mike.

The Dinner sold at auction for $2,000 and 100% of the proceeds went directly to the foundation.

The Friendswood Education Foundation has raised over $1.2 million dollars since its inception in 1999 for Friendswood schools.
