The Levy County Schools Foundation (LCSF) will be hosting its annual Superintendent’s Gala on Saturday, Feb. 7.

The event, which includes dinner and musical entertainment, will take place at 6 p.m. at Chiefland Elementary.

The Gala is the premier fund-raiser for the Levy County Schools Foundation, a not-for-profit organization established in 1989 to support Levy County schools. The event has become a Levy County tradition, providing an opportunity for members of the business community, civic leaders, and local residents to gather in support of local education.

The past eight Galas have raised over $85,000 to support a variety of education-related initiatives and help the Foundation expand its mission.

“The Gala not only raises funds for the Foundation’s Scholarship program,” commented Executive Director Laura Slaback, “but also highlights the generous and continuing support of many corporate partners, as well as local residents who want to insure our students' academic success.”

Another Gala tradition will be continued by students of the Williston High School Culinary Arts program, who will cater the formal dinner under the direction of teacher Earleen Williams.

This year the main entertainment for the event will be the Central Florida Community College Jazz Combo.

The proceeds of the 2009 Gala will help the Foundation continue to award scholarships to graduating seniors at Levy County High Schools.

During the past decade, the Foundation has distributed thousands of dollars in scholarships, with over $58,000 awarded in the past year alone.

The Foundation has established three contribution levels for the Gala. All Patrons will be recognized at the event. The levels are:

Gold Patrons Contribution $1,000

Silver Patrons Contribution $ 500

Bronze Patrons Contribution $ 250
