The Stubbs’ Educational Foundation’s is a non-profit created by Martha and Ron Stubbs to provide music scholarships for K-12th grade students in North Florida and South Georgia. To date, the foundation has awarded approximately 555 scholarships valued at $441,027.58 and has established 26 endowments. At least 70% of the scholarships go to financially need-based students and the remaining to merit recipients. The Variety Extravaganza Mardi Gras Ball is just one way the foundation raises money to fund music scholarships. The evening features dinner, live music, dancing, and silent auction. This year’s Mardi Gras Ball is on February 18 from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m at the Tallahassee Antique Car Museum. Current foundation president Chuck Stubbs welcomes all interested in the Mardi Gras Ball or the foundation to contact (850) 893-8782.
