The Amboy Education Foundation enjoyed another successful year of fundraising.  We have also been grateful recipients of contributions from the United Way of Lee County, generous alumni and memorials on behalf of individuals that held the students of Amboy and their schools near and dear to their hearts.  As a result, we were able to allocate $30,000 to the Amboy School District for the 2019-2020 school year.  This is a $2,000 increase over last year!  This level of support to the schools is only possible through the generosity of our sponsors and all that participate in our events.  We recently had our first fundraiser of the year, the Annual Bowl-a-thon was held at Plum Hollow with 14 teams participating.  This is truly a fun event where scores don’t matter.

Our next fundraiser is the Wine (beer) and Cheese Gala to be held at the Amboy Community Building on Saturday, March 21st.  This event has certainly evolved over the years.  The Hors Devours are plentiful and unique.  Be sure to come hungry!  We added Beer to the tasting several years ago will feature Irish Whiskey this year! The fun doesn’t stop there, we also have a Dessert Auction with fantastic homemade treats and a live auction of meals prepared and served by the Amboy School Board and Amboy Education Foundation members.  Get your group of friends and family together to bid on one or both of these dinners.  For tickets, please contact Mark Becker at 857-2586 or stop in to the Long Branch.

Summer can get busy so mark your calendars today to join us for our annual Lyle Reuter Open – Golf Outing (August 7th) and the Depot Days Dash 5K Run/Walk (August 29th).
