Oh what a night! The Education Foundation would like to thank everyone who made donations,  volunteered, purchased tickets, and joined us in the fun last Saturday night, February 22 nd, at our 18 th Annual Winter Benefit! We are so grateful to be a part of such a wonderful and giving community which came together to support our schools in continuing their efforts to provide engaging, enriching, inclusive and growth-focused educational environments for our students.

Below are just some quantitative highlights of this year’s Winter Benefit:

  • 149 tickets sold
  • 124 people attended our event
  • 121 items offered in sports & silent auction and raffles
  • $20,000+ in total event revenue
  • $120,000 has been committed and scheduled for donation to our district

Now is a great time to join the Education Foundation! As little or as much help you are able to offer is all it takes! Please join us to learn more at our next meeting scheduled for Tuesday, April 14 that 7:30 pm when we will begin to make plans for future initiatives and efforts.  If you would like to join us please RSVP to edfoundation@district31.net.

And stay tuned into your D31 tech media because the Ed Foundation is just days away from opening a Second Chance E-Shop on our website where you will be able to purchase more great auction items to continue the Ed Foundation’s fundraising efforts to benefit our amazing schools and kids!
