Green & Gold Gala Update

It is with empathy, kindness and support of the entire Lane Tech Community that we need to announce the postponement of our Green & Gold Gala and online auction. Thanks to everyone who helped in the planning of our Spring Fundraiser and most importantly, all of the generous donors with whom events like this would never be possible. Now more than ever, it is our turn to give back and support all of those who have always been there for us! Take a moment now to review the list of sponsors and donors below and consider supporting them now.


Please know that all ticket holders will be emailed separately with refund options. Similarly, all donors will be contacted with options for their generous donations for the online auction.


On behalf of the entire Green & Gold Gala Committee and Friends of Lane,


Thank you to all of our generous Donors & Sponsors! Find a list of all Donors & Sponsors HERE

Lane Tech College Prep is the largest public school in Chicago, ranked #3 in Illinois by U.S. News and World Report. To achieve this level of success, Lane has developed an unparalleled portfolio of challenging academic programs, skill-building STEM classes and extracurricular activities, many of which are not possible without community donations.

Our 4,300-member student body reflects the cultural and social diversity of Chicago. Our students represent every Chicago ward, and over 40% come from low income households. CPS funds alone are insufficient to provide programs, experiences and even basic infrastructure that allow us to maintain our high educational standards. Please consider lending your support to fund investments in these initiatives, including teacher grants, modernizing Lane’s aging facility, and security upgrades to keep students and staff safe.

To achieve this year’s fundraising goals, the annual Green and Gold Gala, an all-volunteer, parent- driven, community event will be hosted by the Friends of Lane on May 1, 2020 at Rockwell on the River. We expect 450 people to attend and thousands will be invited. Please support Lane Tech by donating a unique experience, item, gift certificate or cash sponsorship for the gala auction.

Your generosity and business will be promoted and featured four different ways:

  • On social media via Lane Tech’s Facebook page, seen by over 8,000 people

  • Via parent newsletters and emails distributed in advance of the event

  • In our online auction on Bidding For Good

  • Onsite at the gala event

Business sponsors above $500 are eligible for additional benefits, as outlined in the attached Lane Tech CHAMPION document.
Please fill out the attached form and include it with your donation. All donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law (Lane Tech EIN # 47-0971734).
We appreciate your consideration and time. Together we can make a difference!
