The Frankfort School District 157C Education Foundation will host its 18th annual fundraising auction at 7 p.m. April 19 at CD & ME, 23320 S. LaGrange Road, Frankfort.
This year’s theme is “Sweet 157C,” based on a quote from Aristotle: “The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.” The foundation will highlight the efforts of great thinkers in history as it raises money to benefit students in the district.
Tickets are $55 per person, with a cash bar, music, food, beverages and live and silent auction items. Attire will be casual.
Auction items include sports memorabilia and tickets, spa day, gift cards from Dan McGee’s Restaurant and Alsip Nursery, and student principal for a day and gym teacher for a day.
Reservations may be made through RevTrak on the foundation’s website, www.ef157c.org, or at any school office.
Last year, the foundation awarded nearly $50,000 in grants to district schools for technology, books and gym equipment.
