GENEVA – The Geneva Academic Foundation is planning its 2018 Grand Gala event to take place Oct. 20 at the Dunham Woods Riding Club in Wayne, the organization announced in a news release.

The Grand Gala is the organization’s premier fundraising event, with a goal this year of raising $25,000 through silent and live auctions, wine pull and sponsor support, the release stated.

Live music and cocktails will begin at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and dancing.

Tickets are $125 per person and can be bought online at www.gafgala.eventbrite.com.

The Geneva Academic Foundation was created in 1987 as a not-for-profit organization with the mission to provide funds for the academic extras for teachers in Geneva School District 304 that tax dollars could not cover.

Currently, the goal is to provide supplemental programs, equipment, and learning experiences to ensure that Geneva students continue to succeed in the current technologically complex and culturally diverse society.

The foundation awarded $1.6 million in teacher grants in 30 years, with all money coming from fundraising activities, the release stated.

The foundation’s most recent grant awards and student scholarships totaled over $30,000.
