Midland Education Foundation Raises Over $1,000,000 With Foreigner Concert

Foreigner rocked the Midland Chap Center Thursday night while the Midland Education Foundation was able to raised over a million dollars.

Before the concert, the Foundation was presented with a check from their title sponsor, Pioneer Natural Resources, for one million dollars. The generous gift from Pioneer began a profitable evening which continued with he pre-concert auction which in turn netted $38,500 from the night’s bidders.

Then Foreigner took the stage and energized the crowd with their classic hits including Cold As Ice, Hot Blooded, and Waiting For A Girl Like You. The packed crowd rose to their feet as the Midland High and Lee High School choirs joined Foreigner on stage for the band’s biggest hit, I Want To Know What Love Is. Though the proceeds have yet to be tallied, this will probably be the largest total the Midland Education Foundation has raised to date.

Midland and Lee High Schools take the stage with Foreigner.
