Raising Education Dollar (RED) Events

The Dallas Center Grimes Education Foundation is proud to offer opportunities for the community to be involved and invest in the long term educational needs of our district - including Dallas Center-Grimes students, staff, faculty, and community residents. We currently offer several exciting charitable opportunities for the community to participate in.

RED Breakfast Fundraiser

An annual breakfast event with a keynote speaker providing insights on learnings from today’s business professionals. Past keynote speakers include Mike Wagner, Alan Feier, Sara Noll Wilson, and Ami Burns. Topics have spanned unlocking your capacity, leading by influence building trust in the workplace, and the importance of STEM in education and the community.


These breakfast events provide informative content for you and your business, an opportunity to network with other professionals, and in turn investing in the future of young people in our district.

RED Dinner & Auction

Dress to impress in your favorite RED outfit at our annual dinner & auction designed to engage the community providing socializing, great food, unique and compelling auction items, and an entertaining & enjoyable evening experience. The inaugural event featured our very own Iowa native, Chuck Offenberger, who shared stories and experiences in only the storytelling way that Chuck could. In 2019, the master of ceremonies was Kent Stock, the man who coached the Norway baseball team during their now-famous final season and he shared his story & thoughts on living your dreams.


This event is scheduled directly ahead of the holidays and provides a great opportunity to socialize with friends, work on your holiday shopping list, and invest in the future of the students of the DC-G School district.
