Evening for Education: A Culinary Experience Raises $100,000 for LISD Students & Teachers
Attended by over 500 parents, friends and faculty of LISD, this year's Evening for Education: A Culinary Experience, sponsored by SHW Group, Inc., was a tremendous success and made great strides in LEF's ability to support the students and teachers of LISD. Through tickets sales, corporate sponsorships and auction donations, LEF raised $100,000 for LISD students and teachers.
Special congratulations goes to Marcus High School, who won a $500 grant. Attendees were asked to vote for their favorite school, and MHS was the winner!
"Evening for Education has become a signature event for LEF, and it was a perfect celebration to mark LEF's 20th year! From Chef Salerno's special cooking show and Bacardi's complimentary drinks to champagne toasts, auctions and more, it was a fun-filled evening to remember!"
- Angie Cox, 2010 LEF Gala Chair
To date, the Lewisville ISD Education Foundation has awarded over $1.6 million to LISD students and teachers. If you missed this year's event, you won’t want to miss next year!
