Gala Dinner & Auction

The 2015 Lincoln Lutheran Gala and Auction is rapidly approaching!  After many years of organizing and working at school auctions in the past, this will be my first Lincoln Lutheran Gala and Auction.  I am very excited to be involved in the planning process and to attend this year. 

The Gala and Auction is a Lutheran Education Foundation event that supports the general operations of Lincoln Lutheran Middle/High School.  It is a special night when everyone comes together to celebrate and support the school that equips young people to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ by providing an excellent, Christ-centered education.

This year our “Founder’s Award” will be presented to Don Duitsman and John Roeber.  This award is given to those who have shown commitment to and steadfast support of the mission of Lincoln Lutheran.  We invite everyone to attend, celebrate, and thank these two for their combined 67 years of dedicated service to the Lincoln Lutheran ministry.

My previous career in Information Technology taught me quickly that CHANGE was inevitable and occurred frequently.  Our 2015 Gala and Auction is no different; there are many changes.

This year’s event will be held Friday, March 27th.   YES, it is on a Friday evening this year, as the following day was not available at the Embassy Suites.  Doors will open at 5:30 pm instead of 5:00 pm, allowing more time for travel after your work day is complete.  This change will be something new for all of us, but we feel it may be a very positive change for the event.

We have many new and unique items for the live auction and the Lutheran Education Foundation has brought back the LEF Scholarship Challenge.  This year, for each $100 donated to the LEF Scholarship Challenge your name will be entered in a drawing for a handmade, custom Lincoln Lutheran quilt that was donated to the school.

It is sure to be another FUN and EXCITING night in the history of Lincoln Lutheran!  If you are planning to attend, you might want to purchase your tickets early as they are going fast.  If you need any additional information or have questions please contact Kristin or Lloyd at 402-467-5404 or you can email us at kbennett@lincolnlutheran.org or lwagnitz@lincolnlutheran.org.

I look forward to seeing you March 27th!
