Chelsea Education Foundation (CEF) and the Educational Foundation of Dexter (EFD) will once again go head to head to raise money for educational grants in their respective communities.
In 2019, the friendly "Rivalry Match" raised over $10,000 for the 501(c)3 non-profits. It was a close match, with the EFD walking away with bragging rights after raising $5,044. The Teams skipped 2020 and picked up again in 2021. While the match was close, this time, CEF won bragging rights, raising $24,099 to EFD’s $21,563 and together they raised $45,662! Both games were held in Dexter!
This year's Rivalry Match has Dexter traveling to Chelsea to face them on their turf.
Since 1985, the Educational Foundation of Dexter has awarded over $1million in teacher/district grants that support students from Pre-K to 12th Grade in the Dexter Community Schools. Previously funded grants include Digital Cameras for DHS Art Dept., Drones for Mill Creek Flight Class, Horse Therapy for Mill Creek Students with Special Needs, Periodicals for Wylie Library, Emergent Reader Books for Anchor and Beacon Reading Specialist, and support for “Dread Strong” Summer Camp.
Together, we make it a win-win.
