Holding the 2nd annual clam boil fundraising event at the South Seekonk Sports Club this month, the Diman Bengal Education Foundation was able to net half of the funds presented to Diman Regional to purchase 55 Chromebooks. The balance of the funding was covered by current Foundation resources. This technology has become a resourceful tool within the English Language Arts Departmentt and helps prepare sophomore students for MCAS 2.0 testing.
For the second year in a row, the clam boil fundraising event was successfully sold out. In addition to ticket sales, the event revenues were generated from donated raffle prices and sponsorships. Among the many quality raffle prizes was a signed football by NE Patriots player Rob Gronkowski. Sponsorships were led by Bay Coast Bank and included Bank Five, Mechanics Bank, Whites of Westport, RALCO, GM Refrigeration, Fernandes & Charest CPA, Mid City Scrap, Samco Plumbing & Heating, Burns Power Tool and Foundation board members.
