The Annual Benefit Auction has become the CFEF's largest fund-raising event. The great support of local businesses and community members is showcased as we auction off many great hand-made items, local products, and services. The added excitement of our hair-dying contest, IPad Password game, wine pull, the ever popular Foundation 500 Matchbox car races, and the chance to become the "live auction spoiler" make this a "Can't miss" event for the community. All of this plus hors'deuvres and desserts! Who could ask for more?
The success of this event directly effects the amount the Foundation is able to fund towards the innovative and creative experiences for students of Cannon Falls Area Schools. It is our hope that the CF community will continue to embrace this event and give us the opportunity to continue our mission. There will be something for everyone!!!
The 2014 Auction will be at the Cannon Golf Club on April 26th, 2014.
The annual Golf Tournament held on Monday, July 16th at Cannon Golf Club was another success for CFEF. Sponsored by White Rock Bank and First Farmers & Merchants Bank, over $7,000 was raised during the tournament. The CFEF is grateful to all who sponsored holes, came and golfed, and enjoyed themselves despite the heat!
Friday, September 21st, 2012, is our annual tailgate kick-off. Come down to John Burch Field from 5:00 to 7:00, support the Bomber football team, and have some fun with the Cannon Falls Education Foundation! Enjoy cotton candy, games, face painting, the bouncy house, and music from our fabulous DJ. Sponsored by Merchants Bank and Mayo Clinic Health System Cannon Falls, a good time is sure to be had by all!
Every year the Cannon Falls Education Foundation participates in the Give to the Max Day on givemn.org. In November, charities across the state of Minnesota have an online fundraising drive. In 2011, over $3740 was donated to CFEF on that single day. In 2012, we raised over $7,000! Please plan to join us again for Give to the Max Day on November 14th, 2013!
Again this year we’re excited to continue the “Club 252” initiative that raised just over $15,000 last year. We invite you to join or renew with a gift of $252 or greater. We believe that “Club 252” builds enthusiasm for the Education Foundation, creates opportunities for our generous donors to become more closely involved, and increases our ability to fund the creative works of our teachers and students.
You can support the Cannon Falls Education Foundation in many ways. We welcome anyone who would like to donate time, energy, money, or talent to help us meet our goals. Donations are tax-deductible and may be made online, by check, stock, or bonds. Donations can also be made in memory of someone or in honor of a special teacher or student.
