2019 Gala & Casino Night Invitation and Respond Card
Lakeland Education Foundation 2019 Honorees
The Lakeland Education Foundation (LEF) will honor three district staff members at its annual Casino Night, Silent Auction, and Dinner Dance to be held at the Villa Barone in Mahopac on Saturday, March 9, 2019.

Three outstanding supporters of the LEF and the students of the Lakeland Central School District are this year’s honorees: Dr. Elaine C. Alden, Donna Bolner and Jacquie Woodruff.

Elaine is the Instructional Coach at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School. Donna serves as an Assistant Principal at Walter Panas High School. Jacquie is the principal at Van Cortlandtville Elementary School.

Created in 1994, last year the Foundation topped $1 million raised and donated to benefit the district’s students. 

The Lakeland Education Foundation seeks to provide opportunities for the students and staff of Lakeland to expand learning opportunities, to maximize the potential of each student, and to augment the fine work that is already underway in the Lakeland Schools.

“The Lakeland Education Foundation has been working hard for the past 24 years to enhance the educational experience for all Lakeland students,” said Diane Kness, LEF President.

The money raised at the evening’s activity will be used to help fund the Foundation’s grant program. For more information or to sign up to attend the event, go to
