Falcon Education Foundation Dinner & Silent Auction

  • Each year, the Falcon Education Foundation honors outstanding staff, students and volunteers across District 49, along with hosting one big fundraiser. Between $30,000 and $40,000 is raised at the event each year through a slient auction, live auction, and other festivities to help fund the FEF teacher mini-grant and scholarship programs.
    COVID-19 restrictions didn't allow the 2020 event to take place, and the April 2021 event has been postponed as it isn't yet feasible to host the event's typical crowd of 300-400 people. The foundation is eagerly awaiting the day when we'll have the chance to gather our D49 community for food, fun and fundraising!

    Date: TBD
    Boot Barn Hall
    13071 Bass Pro Drive, Colorado Springs 80921
    Auction begins at 6:00 p.m.  |  Dinner at 7:00 p.m.

    The theme for the next event is "Denim & Diamonds." More details coming once the new date is set.
