Aside from a threatening snowstorm, The Schaumburg Township Elementary School Foundation delivered its best signature event ever. The gala was held on Friday, Feb. 22, at The Stonegate Conference Centre in Hoffman Estates and was attended by close to 300 guests.
"We are grateful and appreciative to BMO Harris Bank as the title sponsor of the event as well as the many additional sponsors, guests, donors and volunteers," said Gary Caby, foundation chairman. "Our success is due to this dedicated collaboration within the community and we thank all who supported our efforts."
Guests enjoyed casino games, dinner and prizes and were entertained throughout the evening by "Captain Jack Sparrow" (impersonator, Rick Aspen). This year featured a new "Diamond Raffle" sponsored by Timothy Grant Jewelers and door prize from Jewelry Mart of Schaumburg. Record net proceeds of $35,000 exceeded foundation goals and will be used to benefit District 54 students for programs not covered by school budgets or tax dollars.
