18th Annual LCEF Gala and Auction

Our 18th Annual LCEF Gala and Auction was held on Thursday, November 1, 2019 at the Gateway Center. A roaring success, the gala raised over $80k in funding to support our mission of providing grants and scholarship to the Lake Dallas Independent School District community. It was a packed house with 330 attendees enjoying an evening that featured a silent auction, lively dinner program, and a live auction.


Funds Support Grant Funding

The proceeds from this annual program will support LCEF in its ability to provide innovative grants for teachers of the Lake Dallas Independent School District and scholarships for graduating seniors of Lake Dallas High School.  


Supporters Make it All Possible

LCEF supporters donate their time, treasures, and talents in support of this annual program and our mission. It is only through your support that time and again we are able to raise substantial funds through sponsorships, donations, and the purchase of auction items and program tickets. The live auction was led by the talented Jay Hoffman, from McCurry Auction Services and featured incredible donated items such as a football signed by Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson, a Large Big Green Egg, and a 65 Gallon Yeti Tundra cooler, to name a few!


Endowments Highlighted

We announced two memorial endowments in memory of longtime, beloved Lake Dallas Independent School District employees, Kent Gladen and Robin Goodale. Kent Gladen served as the Lake Dallas High School Coach while Robin Goodale served as a librarian at Lake Dallas high School.


The dust has barely settled from the 18th Annual LCEF Gala and Auction yet we’re already looking forward to next year! Thank you to all of our supporters, fulfillment of our mission to support the teachers and students of Lake Dallas Independent School District would not be possible without you!
