Lakeshore Excellence Foundation Set to Hold Annual Online Auction

Lakeshore Excellence Foundation Set to Hold Annual Online Auction to support  Lakeshore Public Schools 
 
​Disney passes, high-end Whirlpool  appliances, spa treatments, gym memberships, destination golf vacations, restaurant  dining, Chicago getaways, and a host of other items will be auctioned off to the highest  bidder beginning this weekend, as the ​Lakeshore Excellence Foundation​ (LEF) kicks-off  its annual online auction benefiting Lakeshore Public Schools.   
 
Bidding starts Saturday, February 1 at Noon, and runs through Saturday, February 8th at  9:00 p.m. Participants can log on to ​https://LEF2020.givesmart.com​ to see the list of  items up for grabs, or visit: ​www.lefonline.org​. This marks the fourth​ ​year the LEF has  held the event, which wouldn’t be possible without the amazing support of dozens of  area businesses and individual donors.   
 
“I am always amazed at the generosity of the local businesses in supporting this event,”  says LEF Chairman J.C. Anderson.  “These retailers are called upon almost every day for  contributions, and they simply cannot support everything.  Our ‘turndown rate’ by the  retailers is extremely low, and we encourage our donors to support these local  businesses.”   
 
Lakeshore Public Schools remain in the bottom 25% of state revenue per student. The  Lakeshore Excellence Foundation works to close that funding gap by acquiring and distributing resources that support district programs and projects aimed at  enhancing, enriching, or supplementing learning opportunities for students, staff and  the  community.     
 
With the support of the LEF, Lakeshore Public Schools has been able to: 
● Transform the libraries at every district school into 21st Century Learning  Centers   
● Implement Project Lead the Way, a nationally renowned STEM curriculum 
● Supply each elementary and  Language Arts classroom in the district with its  own lending library 
● Upgrade sound, lighting, and other technical components in the Community  Auditorium ($660,000 project - due for completion in 2020) 
 
The LEF has also been huge supporters of: 
● First Robotics 
● Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs 
● Musical productions   
 
In 2019, the LEF online action raised $19,000 for Lakeshore Public Schools. To donate,  or learn more about the Lakeshore Excellence Foundation, visit: ​www.lefonline.org
