The 2021 Dinner Gala, a Virtual Experience

In 2021, almost 500 registered & tuned in to view our Virtual event, with over $30,000 generated! We thank Plus One AV & the L-W Central staff for their broadcast support in making the event a success!  

Hosted by  Executive Director, Bob Kennedy & Foundation Board President Stacie McGlone, information on how the Foundation raises money & first-hand testimonials from students & Partners were provided. Amazing gift baskets were donated by individuals & businesses whose generosity makes a positive difference in the lives of many Lincoln-Way students & families. Our appeal this year will be for a CNC piece of equipment to be used in the “trades” programs at school.

In May of 2021,  $31,500 in scholarships was provided to graduating seniors. We recently donated $61,500 to the District for classroom enhancements! Some items can be viewed at https://youtu.be/3ZRN21oGV2w.
