The East Valley Institute of Technology’s Education Foundation (EVITEF) will host its annual gourmet breakfast fundraiser on Nov. 6.

The breakfast, which is EVITEF’s only fundraiser of the year, will be 7 to 9 a.m. in the EVIT Culinary Banquet Hall, 1601 W. Main St.

The funds raised will provide scholarships for qualifying low-income students.

Last year’s event raised more than $65,000 and assisted nearly 200 EVIT students in paying for class fees, uniforms, kits and tools.

Individual tickets can be purchased for $125 each (90 percent tax-deductible).

Table sponsorships are also available ranging from $1000 to $10,000. To RSVP and pay, go to:
