Lincoln-Way Foundation Virtual Gala & Auctions
The Lincoln-Way Foundation thanks the entire community for celebrating their "Love of Lincoln-Way" via the Virtual Gala & Auctions on Saturday, February 20, 2021 . This year, almost 500 registered & tuned in to view our event, with over $30,000 generated. We thank Plus One AV for their broadcast support & help in making the event a success!
This fun night was hosted by Executive Director, Bob Kennedy, and Foundation Board President Stacie McGlone. Throughout the evening, information on how the Foundation raises money & first-hand testimonials from students & Partners were provided. Bids were widespread on amazing gift baskets donated by individuals & businesses whose generosity makes a positive difference in the lives of many Lincoln-Way students & families. Raffles were won by Chrstine McCormick, Beth Ryan & Jason Yutesler. Thanks for taking a chance!
Due to COVID-19, the Foundation has had to cancel or modify many programs in 2020. In order to continue to generate financial support with which to enrich and enhance the opportunities and educational experiences of Lincoln-Way High School District 210 students, virtual events will continue in early 2021, but hopefully we will be face to face at CD & ME at our Summer Fest on 7/16/2021!
We provided more than $22,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors in 2020. With the support of the community from the 2021 Virtual gala, we hope to increase it to $30,000 this May! Additional proceeds from the event are also used for classroom enhancements, which can be viewed at https://youtu.be/3ZRN21oGV2w. The Foundation appreciates your support year round for all our campaigns.
