Proceeds from the Pearls of Wisdom event support the Education Foundation’s Adopt A+ Grants program. This school year, in honor of its 25th anniversary, the VBEF awarded $150,000 in grants to deserving Virginia Beach City Public Schools teachers. This marks the largest grant distribution at one time in the foundation’s history.
