ASF to honor “Mac”

The Aldine Scholarship Foundation (ASF) will honor Jim “Mattress Mac” McIngvale for his support of Aldine ISD during the ASF Community Star Awards Luncheon, set for Wednesday, May 15, at the M.O. Campbell Educational Center, located at 1865 Aldine Bender Road.

“Jim has been a long-time supporter of the public school system and he has especially been a strong supporter of and donor to Aldine ISD,” said ASF President Dr. Darla Miller.

During the luncheon, McIngvale will be roasted by former Houston Oilers quarterback Oliver Luck, who currently serves as CEO of the Harris County Sports Authority.

The luncheon is open to the public, but space is limited to 500 guests. Individual tickets are $50 per person ($35 for Aldine ISD employees), while permanently endowed named scholarships tables are $10,000, planned named endowment tables are $5,000 and full scholarship tables are $1,500.

All of the proceeds benefit ASF, which awards scholarships to Aldine ISD graduating seniors to attend North Harris Montgomery Community College District schools.

Last year’s inaugural luncheon, which honored retiring Aldine ISD Superintendent M.B. “Sonny” Donaldson raised $24,000 for ASF scholarships. Miller is hoping this year’s event exceeds that figure.

“This year, we hope to double that,” Miller said. “I hope those interested in attending this year’s luncheon purchase their tickets early. Last year, we had to turn people away because they waited to purchase tickets at the door after the luncheon was filled to capacity.”
