Hard-working volunteers and students pulled together for the Education Foundation’s “Food for Thought” event and created a truly fantastic evening at Four Winds Camp on Saturday, May 25.

Remarks like, “You really know how to throw a great party!” to “That was the most fun evening we’ve had at a fundraiser” were uttered by guests, stuffed with outstanding food, proudly carrying off their highly sought after silent and live auction winnings – most of which were created by students.  There were a few “pop-up” auction items, including a musical evening with Cory Wiscomb and Rob Eagle and a dinner for 10 cooked by Senator Kevin Ranker that came about at the last minute and added to excitement generated by the other fantastic live auction items.

A record crowd of 150 people helped to raise more than $25,000 that will go toward supporting important school programs.

The OIEF board wishes to offer a heartfelt thanks to all who volunteered, attended and contributed so generously to the Food for Thought Benefit. We are very happy the weather cooperated and everyone had a great time while helping to support our public school kids.

Big ideas are already in the works for next year!
