CEF’s education gala is DC’s premier education event. It is the one night when the education community – advocates, policy-makers, and administrators – come together in support of education funding to honor those who have demonstrated their strong commitment to increasing the federal investment in education for the success of our nation’s students.

You may purchase individual tickets on our website or by emailing CEF Deputy Executive Director Sarah Abernathy at Abernathy@cef.org.
