REMEMBER, we’re changing it up this year. No more fancy evening dresses and snazzy suits. THIS IS A TAILGATE!

This year it’s all about football jerseys, college t-shirts, and anything you’d wear to the game.

Support your favorite team with your favorite gear for the evening. Be comfortable and ready to watch some football while you support Lewisville ISD students and teachers!


Meet DFW sports staple Dale Hansen!

That’s right. WFAA Sports Anchor Dale Hansen is heading to this year’s Evening for Education to be part of 1 TEAM, 1 DREAM to support the students and teachers of the Lewisville Independent School District.

The VIP experience doesn’t just come with the opportunity to meet Hansen though. In fact, anyone attending the event who purchases the VIP experience will have a chance to win one of LEF’s select experiences that will go on auction later in the evening.

In addition, all of the VIPs will experience exclusive tastings in a unique area of the event dedicated to VIPs only.

Does this sound like it’s for you? You can purchase VIP tickets as well as event tickets above. For more on the event as a whole, read below!


This year, the Lewisville ISD Education Foundation’s famed event – Evening for Education – changes it up to showcase the rich Texas football tradition with the 2019 theme: 1 TEAM, 1 DREAM! Fans of Lewisville ISD will get to show their fanhood for their favorite football teams while they support the students and teachers of the Lewisville Independent School District at the best tailgate party around.

Guests and sponsors are encouraged to wear their favorite football clothes, represent their favorite teams, or even throw on a jersey for the night of football fun on September 7 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Lewisville.

“Each year the hardworking LEF Evening for Education committee comes up with a theme for the evening, and this year we will showcase all things football,” said this year’s Evening for Education Committee Chair Mary Jacoby of DATCU. “LEF’s Evening for Education is the pinnacle event in the LISD community every year, and we are excited to partner with local businesses, restaurants and LISD to make 2019 the best one yet.”

Don’t worry foodie fans, LEF will still make sure to have outstanding restaurants everyone raves about for the annual premiere foodie event with more than 20 top restaurants expected this year. The difference, though, is that football fans will be able to enjoy the night’s best games on multiple screens throughout the event while they eat this year and, more importantly, support scholarships and grants for the students and teachers of Lewisville ISD.

“As Lewisville ISD is always considering innovative and exciting ideas to educate our community’s students, we really tried to come up with a creative, new idea to support the district,” said LEF President Michelle Cree. “The LEF team is excited to offer supporters an opportunity to raise money in a fun and unique way.”

One reason the event is set to be a blast will be the support from students throughout the district. They will be playing an integral role throughout this year’s Evening for Education.

There will still be the opportunities everyone loves to walk away with something extra through the live auction, premiere raffle baskets, but also new fun ways to win.

Don’t miss out on this year’s best tailgate party with LEF. Have a great time while you support students and teachers of Lewisville ISD at 1 TEAM, 1 DREAM – AN EVENING FOR EDUCATION.
