The OEF Board of Trustees would like to say thank you to the 400 guests, our generous sponsors, food donors, and silent auction contributors for making the 8th Annual “Spirit of Olentangy” Community Night the most successful ever! The March 12, 2016 event, held at The Shops at Worthington Place, raised $30,000 in support of OEF’s mission of Enhancing Academic Excellence in our schools. This is a 40% increase in proceeds from the 2015 event, a remarkable result that could not have been achieved without your support.
All proceeds fund teacher grants for innovative programs that are not covered by the school system budget, and scholarships for graduating seniors in the three Olentangy High Schools. Since 2001, OEF has distributed over $600,000 in teacher grants and scholarships.
We would like to extend a special thanks to our Presenting Sponsors for the 4th consecutive year, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center/Carepoint Lewis Center!
The evening was made extra special by The McCartney Project, led by district resident and long time supporter of OEF, John Scherer.
The food at the event was outstanding, we are truly grateful for the donations of the following food sponsors:
Cane’s Sawmill Road/Powell
Thanks to all of our financial sponsors, we could not have achieve the record result without you!
