2019 GREEN AND GOLD GALA

1/16
Friday, May 3rd, 2019
from 7pm to 11pm
Moonlight Studio
​1446 W. Kinzie

The Green & Gold Gala is Lane Tech’s largest community fundraising event. We rely on its success to sustain the programs that distinguish our school and our students. Proceeds from the event will provide ongoing financial support of teacher grants, new PE equipment and, most importantly, investments in student programs and initiatives that are not funded by Chicago Public Schools (e.g. Maker's Lab, Robotics, Aquaponics, 1:1 Tablet Initiative, and more). 

For any questions or if you would like to lend a hand, please contact : debi@aperfectevent.com

LETTER FROM THE GALA COMMITTEE

Lane Tech College Prep is the largest public school in Chicago, ranked #3 in the state of Illinois by U.S. News and World Report. Our 4,300-member student body reflects the cultural and social diversity of Chicago. Last year, the College Board recognized Lane Tech for administering more Advanced Placement exams than any other high school in the United States and Apple drew the tech world’s eyes to Lane as they launched their new school-focused iPad at Lane last spring.

 

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 made possible exclusively through private philanthropy .


We are only as strong as our community, and we invite you to be a part of Lane’s amazing story. 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 3, 2019 at Moonlight Studios. We expect 450 people to attend and thousands will be invited. Please support Lane and our 4,300 students by donating a unique experience, item or 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 $250 are eligible for additional benefits as outlined in the attached Lane Tech CHAMPION document.


Simply fill out the attached form and include it with your donation. Please remember, all donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. (Lane Tech EIN # 47-0971734) We encourage you to make it a priority to participate. Investing in our children represents an investment in the future of our country. Together we can make a difference! We appreciate your consideration and time.
