Grandparents Day, the Gala Dinner & Auction, the Warrior Classic Golf Tournament, the Coming Home alumni event or any of our other special functions and events only succeed with the strong support of parents, alumni, and friends of Lincoln Lutheran. The volunteer efforts, donations, and participation of all of these groups are vital parts of everything we do.

Gala Dinner and Auction
The Lutheran Education Foundation hosted the 26th annual Lincoln Lutheran Gala and Dinner Auction as a virtual event on March 19, 2021. The live streamed event included both a "live" and silent auction. Nearly $123,000 was raised to support Christian education for current and future students. In the total was $47,574 raised for the Scholarship Ask which was the largest amount raised in the 10 years the Scholarship Ask has been in existence.
“The annual Lincoln Lutheran gala is always a great time to come together to celebrate and support Christian education, while having fun with good friends. This year’s event was even bigger and better than ever, and we were blessed to be a part of it”
--Matt and Anne Blankenbiller.
Scott Ernstmeyer presented the 2021 Shield of Faith Award to Michael and Susan Staab and the 2021 Founder's Award to Gary and Sue Loontjer. These two awards recognize the many ways that both couples have enhanced the ministry of Lincoln Lutheran and Lutheran Education.
“I have attended the Gala for seven years. I am amazed and humbled each year as over 400 guests attend and make a difference in the lives of young men and women today, tomorrow and forever. The event is an evening of fun and fellowship for the Warrior family in generous support for Christ-centered education and scholarships.”
--Lloyd Wagnitz, Director of Ministry Advancement.
