The Englewood Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization
that raises money to provide scholarships and creative learning
experiences for Englewood students, held its annual Fall Fling on
Nov. 15, at the Englewood City Center.
Supporters of the Englewood Education Foundation’s work
celebrated this past year’s successes at the dinner and auction. In
2008, $11,500 was allocated to scholarship recipients at EHS and
CFAHS, and more than $20,000 was awarded in teacher creativity
grants to classroom teachers for enrichment projects that are not
funded by the school district. A group of Strings Attached students
played several violin and cello pieces. Strings Attached received a
$2,500 creativity grant in honor of Olga Wolosyn, who was a very
active member of the foundation.
We want to say thank you to the Englewood City Council, and Gary
Sears, the city manager and his staff who provided invaluable
assistance for the Fall Fling and for the work of the Foundation.
The Board of Directors of the foundation recognizes this support as
another example of the outstanding cooperation that exists between
city government, the Englewood Education Foundation, and the
Englewood School District. The City Council generously waived the
rental fee for the Civic Center, leaving the foundation to
reimburse the city only for out of pocket costs for staff.
The foundation is also appreciative of outstanding financial
support from businesses that helped sponsor the Fall Fling. This
year’s title sponsor was Ralph Schomp Automotive. Lisa Schomp has
been a superb supporter of the Englewood Education Foundation for
several years. Sports Authority, Bank of Choice, and Wells Fargo
Bank also provided significant support. The Board of Directors of
the Foundation is most grateful for the support of the Fall Fling
sponsors, which allows all of the money raised from ticket sales to
be used for scholarships and creative learning experiences.
And a very special thank you to the many local businesses and
individuals who donated the wonderful items to our silent and live
Anyone who missed the Fall Fling, but wishes to assist
Englewood’s kids, may send a donation to the Englewood Education
Foundation office at 4101 S. Bannock St., Englewood, CO 80110.
With the exception of a paid auditor, the Foundation is an
all-volunteer organization. Therefore, nearly all of the money
raised helps Englewood’s kids.
Mary Dounay, president, Englewood Education Foundation
