EASTON — The town's nonprofit educational foundation had an extraordinary year in 2005, raising more than $100,000 to buy new computers and pay for teacher grants in the public schools.
The Foundation for Excellence in Education in Easton, known as FEEE, raised $138,000, the highest amount in its 16-year history, through its annual dinner-dance and silent auction in November at Christina's in Foxboro.
Thomas Keegan, a FEEE spokesman, said that amount compares to $118,000 raised in 2004 and $98,000 in 2003. Some 670 people bought tickets for the dinner-dance and auction, compared with 530 tickets sold in 2004."
