Past PPS Foundation Events

Back to School - Brats & Brew – Held on Thursday, August 23, 2018 at the Peoria Riverfront Museum

New this year!  We celebrated the start of a new school year with a successful event that raised money to purchase uniforms for Peoria Public School students.  A huge thank you to everyone who came out and supported this event.  An especially big thank you to our event sponsors: CMI (Commericial Mechanical, Inc), Associated Bank and Mosquito Authority. This event also couldn't have been possible without the support of Peoria Riverfront Museum, Dexter O'Neal & the Funkyard, Cami Proctor, Alwan & Sons Meat Company, Uncle Bob's Homemade Ice Cream, and Kitchen Cooked Chips. 

We raised over $2700-- which will allow us to purchase hundreds of new uniform shirts and pants for students in need.  Our goal is to raise a total of $10,000 during this school year.  Our Uniform Fund has helped thousands of students who otherwise would not have proper clothing for school.  Please help us reach this goal by clicking here to donate today. You will truly be making a difference in the life of a student!
