About the Event

For the last 20 years, The Education Foundation has partnered with O2B Kids to host “O2B A Kid Again”, an annual fundraiser that is “A grown-up’s day to play!” This event is typically hosted the first weekend in May to kick off Teacher Appreciation Week.

This year, “O2B A Kid Again” was canceled out of precaution of Coronavirus concerns. The Foundation, along with community members and businesses, still wanted to recognize and empower the 1,700 public school teachers in Alachua County by sending them a gift of appreciation, so “O2B in School Again” was started!

Sponsors of “O2B in School Again”: Florida Credit Union, Publix Super Markets Charities, Mi Apa Latin Cafe, Gainesville Health and Fitness, Gator BTW, Adam’s Ribs Co., Satchel’s, Chris Doering Mortgage, El Toro, Copper Monkey West, O Solo Mio, and Office Depot/Office Max.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and will be sharing updates about 2021 events.
